I occasionally send in pics I take at (mostly) the EAA Oshkosh fly-in. Not sure if I'll be able to go this year - the 70th time they've held it there - but my pic, an F-15(?) with compression vapors near sunset (shot this past summer) is about in the middle of the video.

Thank :) It didn't win anything, but it's nice to have the editorial staff choose it for their video. I've gotten a few pics of the week... they send out baseball hats to the winners (and to the featured letters). They ever sent me my 3rd hat, though.

Thanks...it was pure chance! I was somewhere else looking around (warbirds, maybe) and noticed the plane doing passes. It was a female pilot, by the way. I just went through Google and You-Tube. I actually think it was an F-18, instead. It was still a lucky shot.

I miss the EAA and general aviation world. I worked for four different companies that participated in AirVenture over the years. Thanks for link to the video and your photo in it.

One of these days I'll try to see if I can become a volunteer photographer at AirVenture. I think someone I talked to about it says I'd have to get hold of them in Jan or Feb to get a chance.
