As this Harrier was turning onto final, I noticed (i.e. brain momentarily engaged) this lone cloud floating in the deep blue sky. As luck would have it (i.e. blind squirrel finds acorn), the cloud was located where the Harrier's trajectory would cross the face very near the center. I just needed to be patient and wait - not my strong suit. This particular Harrier is the color bird of the VMA-513 'Flying Nightmares' squadron and looked a little foreboding as he crossed the sky - thus the title.

Tora x 3 prep. The 7-Up bottle on the fuselage step is a nice touch.

Love the kid shots, Leo. To go from well posed to utter mischief is classic.

Thank you Leo. There's a tremendous amount of pressure involved due to the costs involved, but I love shooting from the 25, the sounds, the smells, the perspectives. There' a "zen" I can feel myself slipping into as I crawl out to my privileged perch, and I feel very blessed to have the opportunity.

I secured a bigger, much more involved B25 air to air assignment in the brief for the one you see in the video. Looking forward to planning and executing that one, the images will be spectacular.
