    Cool B-1 Bomber

    A pair of B-1 bombers buzzed my house yesterday afternoon, flying over probably at about a thousand feet directly overhead. It was immensely cool. Of course, I had camera in hand and was snapping shots as they flew over













    It's too bad they weren't flying in formation when they flew over...that would have made for some cool shots They were situated about two minutes apart.

    What was really cool is that we live about 15 miles from the airport as the crow flies. I could watch the jets fly all the way in, and hear the engines kick in when they took off after landing.

    I used my 70-300, but for a couple of the shots I don't think I went any more than about 120mm or so, given how close the jet was
