On the Prowl
With all the single-jet military demos grounded due to "austerity," there was room at the Rhode Island Air Show June 16 for something else. Nice to finally see some close fly-bys of this old, hard-working type before they get retired.
Levels adjusted; cropped and sharpened.
Landing on a very short beach requires water ... .
Cannon G11. No manipulations.
