Paris Panorama: U.S. Military Aircraft Corral

Check out this panorama I made of the U.S. military aircraft on display at this year's Paris Air Show. From right to left you'll clearly see a C-130J Super Hercules, an F-16C out of Spangdahlem Air Base in Germany, an F-15E Strike Eagle, a new Marine Corps UH-1Y Venom and a C-5 Galaxy. And no, it's not a U.S. bird but I had to capture Airbus' A400M Grizzly airlfter (with the A380 behind it).

If you look very closely you can see the vertical stabilizer of a second Strike Eagle behind the one in the picture. You can also see a Department of Homeland Security-operated MQ-9 drone sitting there below the C-5's empennage. Oh yeah, the very top of a C-17 tail is visible over the Galaxy's wing, too.

Sorry, folks, no Navy planes.

I'll try to take more of these panoramas throughout the show.
