Excellent shots. Your timing, exposure and shutter speed are spot on.

F22 Raptors for air superiority. The F-15 retirement is already under way if I recall correctly. Now, the f-15e is a different mission - so not sure if the F22 takes over that mission or if F16s will do it.

Ah... I'm so out of touch with what is going on in the world of aircraft, I used to be very keen as a child on aviation etc.
