Wow! I can hear and feel this photo! And great clarity for the speed. Great subject against the background.

Simply EXCELLENT!!! Great work Graham!

look almost like a CGI :)

Looks awesome. Although it looks like the sun is on the right of the plane, but your key light on the plane is coming from the left.

Would you consider flipping the background slate horizontally?

Thanks Anthony - although this isn't a composite. The light can play funny tricks at that altitude/time of day.

Thanks Aneesh, air-to-air isn't easy!

If air-to-air isn't easy, I'd hate to think how hard it would be to shoot this well going vertical at 4G...
Great shot
