The F-18 is an aircraft with a particular aerodynamic line. In the presence of cold air and with very high-speed maneuvers, condensation forms above all on the back of the plane. And if this F-18 is the demonstration aircraft of the Swiss Air Force, and we are in the middle of the mountains, at 2300 m., then ... all colors happen ... because usually the condensation is white, but if the light comes from the right side, then it turns a warm color, as in this case! I was looking for some old images taken above Axalp, in central Switzerland, where every year in October the shooting demonstration of Swiss aviation is held and I noticed this, certainly particular and of which I had really forgotten. October 13, 2010, Canon 400d, Sigma lens 120/400 mm.
