Thunderbirds in Malaysia!

This aerial display team needs no introduction...

1st up, the famous diamond formation.
Flying close
This caught me unware and it was really difficult to shoot because of the masses of people as well your wondering where are they crossing in front!
The famous Thunderbirds design
I point here, you point there... wonder what they were up to?
Coming through...
And crossing right in front!
See...
The diamond formation again.
One of my favourite shots of the day. Getting the way the air flowed over the F-16 was cool. Frankly, I was just trigger happy and didn't know that this had been taken. But it's beautiful anyway...
Upside down...
And turning slowly...
Flying slowly in front of us...

And hitting the afterburners... this another favourites of mine!
Beep beep! Coming through! :P

I purposely darken this shot... it's cool as the trails show the turn...

Corkscrew in front of the sun amd going vertical! Wooooot!
In a straight line...

No... no F-16 exploded but this was interesting how this shot turned out! :)
Passing by...
ANOTHER of one of my favourite shots... Pity about the grey sky. Blue would have been really cool!
Arrowhead formation
Upside down again. But with all 6 of them.
And coming down...
And going up again...
Let's stretch it baby!
And curve it!
And split it all UP!
Tbirds 1-4 doing a flyby. You need to see it in full pix and you'll spot the numbers on the F-16's...
Mirror formation
And that's it! Pity about the sky but it one thinks about it, maybe it's better coz out in the blazing Malaysian hot sun might not be such a great time to be at! But then again, that means no blue sky. Ah well... win some, loose some. But i'm happy over this as this is my 1st time! :)
