Love the really strong lines that you have got with this picture, but the sky wasn't exactly co-operating was it!!

Very cool!

Is that what I think it is?
It looks like an open cockpit (plane).
Or maybe a racing car cockpit.
Very strong lines and curves on this. Not a co-operative sky, but not gloomy. Very "graphic design" to me.

That's a really nice shot and one I can really appreciate! My husband has been on the F-16, and a Director for the F-22 and F-35 programs. We are a "defense" family as my son also is on the F-22 program.
