This has got to be the best one I have ever seen. This just shocks me when these are caught on film. If you have one please share with the rest of us.
Found this one at Anomalies-unlimited.com
. How this happens I just have trouble
understanding . There are other great pics on this site.
Ensign John Gay, photo officer for Fighter Squadron Two (VF 2), took this amazing photo of a F/A-18 Hornet
as it broke the sound barrier. The jet was assigned to Strike Fighter Squadron One Five One (VFA-151) and John was standing on the 0-10 level weather
deck of the USS Constellation (CV 64). He used a Nikon N-90s, Nikon 70-300 ED zoom lens and Kodacolor 200 negative film. The camera was set for manual
exposure of F/5.6 at 1/1000 sec. John, the lucky and talented dog, caught this masterpiece with a single shot by
prefocusing at approximately 200-300 yards off the port side of the ship and then panning left to right as
the aircraft flew by. This image has appeared in many publications worldwide.
