This week I had the incredible opportunity to fly in an F-16 with the 120th Fighter Squadron at Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora, Colorado for an assignment with 5280 magazine. I brought several Canon cameras with me in the cockpit, capturing powerful stills and video over the Rocky Mountains while four other F-16s flew right on our wing. Captain TenEyck LaTourrette piloted our ship with aplomb (and drilled me with a surprise 7.5 Gs right at takeoff … uggh). A special thanks to Captain Kristin Haley for making this shoot possible!
