Photographer's Note

This is a view of the famous "Freedom Flight" performed at the recent air show at Hill AFB in Ogden, Utah. I have another picture on TE of these planes but I ran across this yesterday looking for yet another picture from the air show.

The "Freedom Flight" consists of the four major fighter planes that have defended, secured and preserved 65+ years of freedom for people all over the world. Starting from the left they are the F-22 Raptor, the F-4 Phantom II, the F-16 Falcon, and the P-51 Mustang. [thanks to Nathan Wald]

P-51's served in combat from 1940 to 1953. The F-4 Phantom from 1961 through 1995. The F-16 was introduced in 1979 at Hill Air Force Base and is in active duty use around the world today. The F-22 became operational in 2004 and represents the latest technology in fighter aircraft.

Nothing fancy on the shot, shutter priority to get some semblance of sharpness.
