2006 St Louis Airshow

I started this series with the most dramatic shot of the show. This was a demonstration from one of the fighters during a low ground pass.

Best experienced at original size!

I believe this is the 'wall of flame' and years ago they had one over 3 miles (18000 feet) long...spontaneous wall of fire but it was not dropped from an aircraft, it was flammables placed on the ground and ignited all at once. Awesome!!

Unbelievable! Part of the show? It looks like a catastrophe! And even more strange are those guys at the front who are just picknicking...

Amazing shot!
Although I'm a little disapointed in you for not getting closer. Us FT'ers must show no fear to get up close to our subject! ; ) hehehe

gr8 - I was up against the barrier - as close as I could go without being arrested. the people in the pic are show people - but I don't know how they stood the heat - it was like a furnace blast all the way back to us!

Wow... there's an almost ugly power about those dark plumes of flame but it's SUCH a compelling image. Great shot!

Spectacular hubris!

Awful.. I mean not picture but smoke and fire, I take it from nature and ecology point... But airplanes are well focused despite all problems of shaking!

thank you Scarlett! It was rather intimidating in person. We could feel the heat from the blast 1/2 mile away!

an absolutly stunning snap !

this took some doing to capture - the plane had made 2 passes already and I was having trouble with focus

I could feel the heat from this at about 1/3 mile away - you can see the people and the suv closer to it - they must have really felt hot!!
