Capturing a Moment
Every New Year's Day for the past 9 years I've been flying above the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game, trying to capture an image of the moment the B-2 Spirit (Stealth Bomber) is over the Rose Parade, and later, the Rose Bowl Stadium. The flyover only lasts 2 seconds, so I need to make sure I'm in the right position. Every second counts. The B-2 is flying at 200mph and I'm a few thousand feet above, circling at 100mph. My window to successfully photograph the moment is very small and timing is everything.
