I don't want to talk about it. This was the shot I wanted even though it is a generic F18 image approaching the sound barrier; this was to be my F18 shot approaching the sound barrier.

There were difficulties, such being suspended from the mast 30 feet up, pitching to and fro and the jet came from behind me. But, I failed. I am taking this as seriously as missing a good brownie, but damn, I wanted it.
