Lockheed F-16 Fighting Falcon —
United States Air Force Major Michelle Curran, who flies as the Opposing Solo in Thunderbird #6, holds her F-16 Fighting Falcon nose high after touching down on Runway 34L.
What a thrill it was to be standing next to the west edge of 34L as the entire team of Thunderbirds landed. Six steps closer and I'd have been standing ON the pavement bordering the concrete that is the surface of the runway. Can't get any closer than that to an active runway that has six jets landing on it .... unless getting arrested by the police or getting splattered by a speeding jet is the goal. lol
Super shooting Gary and lucky being in just the right spot.
That's a very nice catch, Gary!
I guess we all do it, but it is evident that she is leaning forward to compensate for the attitude of the aircraft be it V1 or flair. Great Shot Gary.
Compliments to the photographer!! This is a TERRIFIC(!!) shot of a beautiful aircraft.
Beautiful capture! It's obvious that General Dynamics probably used a landing picture like this to calculate the 'rake' of the ventral fins!
