Response to Grumpy Old Guy (Reply #43)

44. Wow! Thank you!

I watched the clip 3x's, with the sound turned up, & grinning each time. And I'm going to watch it again! Such lovely loud "Echoes in the Canyon," to borrow a phrase.

Plus, that's an amazing shot you posted!

Hubby had a classmate/friend, a young physician, who LOVED stock car racing. Sadly, he was killed in a motorcycle accident.
Anyway, Johnny always said that watching those races was a "such a surge." Perhaps that's the best word I could use to describe watching these aircraft - they're a surge!!

Years ago, we used to live within ~2.3 miles of Langley AFB and I often drove by just as an F-15's or an F-16's was taking off, as they often were. The runway stopped just short of the Base's fence which was within just a few yards of the street. Talk about feeling a force - it was driving by when one of those things was beginning a vertical climb within a few hundred yards above your car top! I imagine that's the same "surge" you got when photographing the flying expertise in Star Wars Canyon, Ross!

Thanks again!
