As a photographer, I can really appreciate the effort these pilots – in both the F-18 and the C-130 – are putting into getting these two high-dollar aircraft in just the right position for this photo shoot. Two cameramen click away as the F-18 fighter maintains a distance of just a few feet behind the massive C-130 from which the photos are being taken. At several hundred miles per hour and with both planes exhibiting vastly different in-flight behavior, pulling up on the back of another plane takes tremendous skill and concentration, and these pilots absolutely nail it.

I would love to see the photos that were captured during this shoot, especially if the photographers caught the flares dropped by the F-18 throughout the shoot. I bet they are awesome photos of one of our military’s most badass pieces of machinery.
