Streaks in the Sky

Just got back from an incredible trip.  Ferried F-18’s over the Pacific.  Beautiful flight from Hawaii to Guam on leg 2.  The clouds were popping, the sky was really deep, and the fighters created some eye-popping wingtip vortices as they moved forward to join on our tanker.  One of the coolest sights I’ve ever seen.
