Bristol Motor Speedway Fly Over...


Today's Sky Watch Friday post comes from Bristol Motor Speedway last fall. With the NASCAR season about to start I thought this might be a good time to put this photo up. If you have ever been to a race you know that fly overs by the military has become a regular occurrence.

Don't forget to click the sky watch link to the left to view other sky watch photos from around the world.

I'm trying to visit blogs that I haven't been to before. I love the pink color sneaking in at the bottom. Great shot. I also have a 13 y/o daughter who got her first digital camera last summer. Occasionally I will put one of hers up instead of mine.

I just wandered in here looking for something else and as a guy who has shot the races at Bristol for a few years, let me say that you have some sweet images.
Nice work. Got any anything of the spring 2009 flyover with the P-47 and P-51?
