A-4 Skyhawk

This aircraft was used by the US Navy as a bomber and attack platform. It was used a lot in the Vietnam War. This aircraft has been retired from the military but is being flown by a private owner. This picture was taken at the 2013 Milwaukee air and water show.

Vapor!!!

Took this picture of a United Airlines 757 landing at O’Hare Intl. airport after a rain storm. What’s good about shooting aircraft after a storm the atmosphere is still full a moisture and when the aircraft are taking off or landing vapor can happen on and around the aircraft. In this case vapor is coming off the edge of the extended flaps. With the dark background and the white of the vapor can make some interesting photography.
