Fairchild-Republic Thunderbolt 2 — - This A-10 Warthog was performing at the 2022 Sun N Fun airshow in Lakeland, Florida. The moon had been visible all afternoon and after several aircraft came close to passing near the moon, I finally got the shot I was trying for. I also like how you can see the swirling exhaust gasses coming from the Warthog. I shot this with my 600mm Canon lens. Camera setting were 1/8000 shutter, F5.6, ISO 800. Please check out my other aviation photography. Votes and positive comments are always appreciated. Questions about this photo can be sent to Info@FlewShots.com

Amazing Photo - One of my favorite aircraft - I saw it in action on one of the Seal Team shows!
A real blast to see it actually fire the cannons.
