Skywatch Friday---up and away!

I've been saving this one for a Skywatch. It was taken not long ago during Belgrade's Air Show. I didn't attend, but watched from our terrace...and snapped a couple of photos. I'm not good on names of aircraft, but you can click on the photo and see if you know what kind of aircraft was emerging from this cloud.

I'll be brave and say its a jet of some sort! The sky is so blue, perfect for plane spotting :)

Right to save it for a special day. It's a winner. Maybe that's moi heading to Paris???

Great shot with the fighter emerging from the cloud! I think its a MiG-29A but to be sure I'd need to ask my 13-yr-old expert.

Looks like an F-14 tomcat to me. Nice pic and what a ride that must be!

Debbie said...

Great timing on your part and a great sky on God's part. Beautiful shot!

Nice shot! I saw the Endeavor take off from the space center this evening - even though we are on the opposite side of Florida we could see the flames and orange glow as it make it's way across the full moon and into space. Very Cool!!!

Trust Virginia to get Paris in there.
I can't see her waving so must be another tourist. It's a great shot.

I asked my students at the Ecole nationale d'aƩrotechnique in Quebec to take a look:
