Moon Shot by Grouper Moon Shot by Grouper
This F-15 was coming down from 15,000 feet at an air show and I was hoping for a shot of it crossing the moon and I got it! Best when viewed large!

Ooooo, gorgeous F-15. :drool: I would fly jets if I had the gut for it...well, UAVs are pretty sweet too, if I get into the Air Force after I graduate. :XD:

In a way this photo is melancholy, but beautiful, especially with the moon in the background. This is an amazing shot. :love:

that's gonna be me someday!!
...
-hopefully
n.n
if my family can get enough money i'll get to go to pilot school and HOPEFULLY join...probably coastguard (because i won't have to kill people...hopefully........) but airforce would kinda cool too n.n
SORRY...i like the shot a whole bunch and it just kinda...made me think about that n.n
BUT NO SERIOUSLY.
love it!
especially the trail of hot air from the engines n.n

Thank you! Actually you can have the military pay for your school, then when you graduate with (top grades you can go into pilot school). This is called "delayed entry"!! Good luck!

and should probably go do some research on it...n.n
hopefully i'll get in! i'll be the first female pilot of the family then n.n (so far i only have both granddads, 2 uncles, and my dad who are pilots n.n)
