Afterburner Power

This morning I was awakened by the sound of a jet flying very low past our home. The sound set off car alarms and rattled our windows, and in my semi-sleep state, I braced for a bomb – which never fell, fortunately!

After hearing at least 2 jets pass by several times, I ran up to the roof with my camera and I saw this:

I have a history of taking jet photographs and these are some of the best ones yet.  Please view these in the large size and take a look at the other photos in the series.  Here’s one more for you.

Hope you enjoy these photos!

  1. Hi MJ,
    I had a taste of it too this morning. Although it wasn’t that loud but it ensued in a resentful walk up to my window after waking up which soon turned into a pleasant experience. The sky was beautiful,watery blue and for once I could catch my 7 am train to Yangmei 😀
