W00t! Fellow Nikon DSLR Chummer! (Mine's a D5100 with a nice big memory card. ^_^) Beautiful zoom shot, too. What d'you reckon the kind of range the aircraft was at from where you took it? I'm guessing you used a telephoto lens but I'll ask you to clear it up; what lens did you use for this pic? o_o

I would think less than 500m,I took it with 70-300 f4.5-5.6G IF-ED

That's still impressive. I love the way you framed the pic; it was a lovely day for a long telephoto like this one. Kudos to your ossum self, and to your ossum kamera! ^_^

Wasn't he North Vietnamese fighter pilot in Vietnam war??

Ah, so he was. For some reason I'd got it into my head that he was a MiG-15 ace.

He flew MIG-15,17and 21.He probably was shot down in MIG-17 by Cunningham and Driscoll but he may never existed.Colonel Tomb may be product of NV propaganda.

All of which I sort of knew, apart from the already admitted mental aberation.

The subdued, moody lighting always makes your compositions special.
