While waiting on pilot John Williams to return on my daughter's maiden ultralight flight, and envious she was stealing my flight time, I wandered around Jamestown Airport looking for friendlies to pose. This Vag is a beautiful bird, even at night.

Shot with Nikon D700, 70-200mm 2.8 ELNS using remote flash and PW triggers. No Photoshop except to add company logo watermark.
