Memorial Day – Thunderbirds (II)


More photographs of the Thunderbirds on Memorial Day, 2016. My daughter and I were walking back to the car, and the US Air Force’s Thunderbirds were making several passes overhead.

Quick edit: I got quite a few pictures of the Thunderbirds during the Air Force Academy’s graduation fly over. Those will be coming soon.
I’m also trying out Twitter and Instagram: @mattreamyphotos

    More great shots! You must have one hell of a camera to grab them THAT clear at that high rate of speed, and the clarity is great! Holy crap, its like you were standing right next to them in some of those shots! Great work!

      Thanks; I really appreciate it!

      A couple of those were more or less right overhead. I’m currently using a Canon T2i and a 75-300mm lens.

      The result is more a matter of opportunity and (for once) being in the right place when the opportunity presented itself. (One of my favorite photos of the afternoon catches the Thunderbirds overhead as a train was passing, and I got both in the shot).

      Stay tuned… I got around 40 pics during the graduation flyover that’ll be coming soon.
