A reader (who wishes to remain anonymous) sent me the link to this picture. Here’s a high resolution version. The photo was taken over the Atlantic Ocean near Charleston, SC on 16 May 2006 — a C-17 released flares, and the smoke from the flares makes the turbulent air in the big plane’s wake visible, including the wingtip vortices.
Awesome! If there is no name for it yet, I reccomend “Gods Binoculars”.
Cheesy yet elegant no?
It’s all a lie! The photograph proves the existence of angels, I tell you!!
Crap. That is a really cool pic… Would’nt want to be flying behind him…
Loved the pic. Thanks.
