No, Not An Injection - I Clearly Said Ejection
Yup, I know that they are called hatches or canopies, but since fighter pilots enter and exit through them to get in or out of a cockpit, they serve the same purpose as doors. Therefore, they can be included in this weekly pictorial theme, right?
This was shot at the Australian International Air Show at Avalon in 2007 and shows an unusual view of the open cockpit and the familiar ejection seat sign.
The biggest challenge at an air show or a motor show is to shoot a frame that does not include onlookers. Because most exhibits - in this case, multi-million dollar aircraft of all descriptions - are cordoned off and there are hundreds of people milling around, either you need to be first through the turnstiles or be able to find just the right angle and height.
But that's the adrenalin of the challenge.
