Vapes and Burners at OLF Coupeville

Honored to capture the use of afterburners at OLF Coupeville by the VAQ-131 Lancers CAG Bird during initial EA-18G conversion training Field Carrier Landing Practice (FCLP). Made the trip worthwhile!


I also have this image available for prints & other products at Fine Art America.


If this is not awesome, then what is respectfully? Please tell. This sight & sound is a rarity as the "noise abatement" Beyond Stupid regs are there, there isn't always enough water in the sky for EA-18G wings & listening pods to compress, and OLF Coupeville isn't used every week. Plus panning is what it is.


Ultimately, I am absolutely enthralled with this image. I hope I have reason to be, you tell me.
