Lockheed Martin F-16C Fighting Falcon

@ General William J. Fox Airfield, Lancaster, CA

March 2017

I attended the Los Angeles County Airshow for the first time as the first outing with a new lens. Capturing the USAF Thunderbirds opposing pass maneuver is always a challenge but did validate sharpness of the lens.  The team transitioned to the F-16A Fighting Falcon in 1983, and upgraded to the F-16C in 1992.  The F-16 has been their aerial demonstration aircraft for the Thunderbirds for over 30 years and is their ninth aircraft type since the team was formed in 1953.  Nikon D500 w/ Tamron 150-600mm, processed with Aperture.
