Its good to see someone taking good care of these vintage aircraft, it looks superb in the colour scheme.

Incredible image. Thanks.
First jet I ever saw. Dad was driving the 49 Plymouth, approaching interurban tracks near Vancouver Airport where the RCAF base was on Sea Island. We thought a train was coming, came to an abrubt stop, and well no tram. Just two weird looking planes roaring overhead.
Sidney Smith
Extraordinary picture given the conditions and angle. Ya gotta love the Thunderbirds team member waving from the USCG Shearwater to the pilot.
Awesome capture!!
Peter West
Great shot Ken! Guess this was taken in hi-speed continuous shooting mode, what gear did you use?

@Peter West- this photo was taken with a Nikon D850 and Tamron 150-600mm G2 with a 6fps burst shot off a Manfrotto monopod.
Là, je dis bravo !!!

Great photo, Ken. As most Dehaviland aircrafts, the design is so nice and dekicate. IO remember having see two of these Vampires flying over Québec City on a WW 1 Memorial day in the early '50s.
Glad to see ther is at least one still flying today.

The Border is over there mate. You are out of your depth. I'd trade that in for a F16.
