Not a total aviation pic but this gives an idea of the Air Wing aboard USS Wasp

Are you kidding, Mike? This is an ultra-astounding aviation pic!! A naval aviation photo that is at the very top of the category! Fantastic!! It is a 25-star shot and that doesn't even take into account that there is a rainbow in the pic too. I am acquainted with several very fine photogs and all of them would be thrilled to be able to click an aviation pic like this. I da-n sure know I would be. Thirty stars and my very, very appreciative Thanks to you for sharing this awesome capture. One quick question .... What was the general location? (A tip of my USSPS aviation photog's cap and a bow to you)

I just found your previous 5* post, Mike, so now I know this was near Sydney Harbor. Thanx for sharing both of these pics. (Wave)
Just for orientation, this shot is taken looking south. And less than another mile on her present course the Wasp would have entered SYD Harbour. Very high sandstone cliffs on both sides...this was R and R for the crew before beginning exercise Talisman Sabre off the Queensland Coast next week I believe...

Many thanks for the kind comments Gary Chris and Hundo!
Took the pic from North Head as Chris mentioned.Hundo,YSSY has some great spotting locations and Williamstown RAAF base is about 2hrs drive north so Come on Down!

Very welcome, Mike! An excellent shot. You have caught a "moment in time & space" that will never be exactly as pictured again. Well done! Sounds just great! When our Indiana winter rolls around, would love to escape the snow and head down your way! Cheers!

Please do Hundo and bring Gary with you!
C.W. Reed
Will certainly plan for that! Keep up those great shots, You have a lot of talent!

Thanks Mate!!
Cheers Mike, Hundo and Gary from SYD! 34S/151E.
Great shot Mike! Extremely clear and crisp on the full size! Did you happen to catch the 3 Chinese warships that came "un-announced" about 3 weeks before this? That was odd given the fact the pics I saw showed the crew on deck with rifles.

Thanks rwb!unfortunately was out of town when the Chinamen came in.
Wasp ESG, Expeditionary Strike Group. Marine strike aircraft, F-35B, V-22, H-53.
Awesome shot 👍
That is Marine Corps aviation. ;) (I know that the Marines are part of the Navy Department and that USMC aviation falls under Naval Aviation, but... I wish the Phrogs were still part of the fleet. I sure do miss flying in them).
