Osprey in a cloud of dust
This VF-22 Osprey demonstrates its maneuverability as it turns in place, kicking up a huge cloud of dust which it almost disappeared in during the deomonstration. This combiniation helicopter/airplane can convert in seconds between modes of flight. This image was taken at 300mm focal length with an exposure of 1/200 seconds at f/11, ISO 200.
