A Picture Paints a Thousand Words

This is my all time favourite shot of an F-111 - even though it cannot actually be seen. In fact it was taken by the F-111. We had cleared a small country airport with air traffic control and the local flying club. Nothing in the air in the local circuit in order for us to have a low level practise run up the length of the runway. But no one thought to tell the local painting contractor, who obviously thought that a "non flying" afternoon was a good opportunity to get out and paint some of the runway markings (the hard way!!). What this poor contractor was thinking a second or so after this photo was taken ...Well, I would love to know.
(In case you miss the point of the photo, that is the shadow of the nose of the aircraft appearing from the left hand edge of the frame - one jet bomber at low level is about to distract him for a moment or two).
