Skywatch-Fighter Planes

Hahaha....I caught these fighter planes as they were on display for National Day Preview last Saturday.

Sorry for the small image of these planes, they were too fast for me. I could not find time to zoom on them. Was lucky that I caught them on camera....lol. You have to click on them to enlarge.
Now I am satisfied with these photos but hope to be standby mode on the actual day of National Day on 9th August 2008 to zoom on these planes if I am lucky enough....lol

Thanks to Tom for hosting Sky Watch. For other sky watchers, you can go to Tom's skywatch blog.

Nice capture of them even though they're small images.
They fly past my house too during rehearsal and on the actual day. But I never can get fast enough to grab and shoot them. They really whizz past before I can react! *lol*

Have a good weekend too!!

Thanks for the nice comments. Hahaha... I am surprised myself too for being able to catch the planes. They are real fast. I just snap in a hurried too without any chance to zoom on them...lol

Hi Alice! TGIF and I’m trying to make a break from some hectic weeks to surf the blogosphere and enjoy your excellent blog…
Loved to see your sky; probably the first time I managed to see it so blue (cloudy blue, ok) in Singapore... ;))
The market series is quite nice, Another shopping destination in Singapore!
Many thanks for your comments on Blogtrotter, still at the MoMA! Hope you enjoy and wish you a great weekend and a nice holiday, in case you have the chance to profit from it! ;))

Thanks for all the nice comments.

Zak, sorry for replying late, national day meant it is Singapore's birthday. She will be 43 this year since gaining independence in 1965.
