When these guys/gals (not sure who was flyin) flew by VERY LOW they told a story about each plane and I have to PROUDLY admit I had a LOT of tears in my eyes. I snapped the shot and stood there saluting as they flew by. Of course I took a few shots but this one really took the cake for me. I will never forget the emotion of these planes and those who flew them even now typing this. (5 years and 930 days ago)

and the fact you can see the pilot proves it's low. I remember vividly how close the were just not having the trees in the picture was more appealing to me and the story behind these planes (which I can't remember and I hate that fact).

P-51 Mustang, F-16 Falcon, and an F-14 Tomcat. Nice planes, nice shot (that P-51 must have been hauling ass)

author says:

Thank you all so much for the compliments. This pic is certainly one I will never forget and I'm so happy I got it. Had a couple more but with them in different positions but seeing as some of ya'll know the planes I'm sure it would give me away.
