A pair of McDonnell Douglas F-4J Phantom IIs of the US Navy Blue Angels aerial display team perform an "Inverted Dirty Pass".
About this creation
The Blue Angels' solo aircraft 5 and 6 perform an "Inverted Dirty Pass", wherein the two aircraft make a formation flyby of the crowd with one aircraft inverted. The "Dirty" name is an aviation term that refers to the high-drag configuration of the aircraft, with the landing gear and tail hooks deployed. This maneuver is unique to the Blue Angels and not performed by the USAF Thunderbirds.
The models feature detailed pilot and WSO cockpits with opening canopies, opening radome with antenna, retractable landing gear, folding wings, deployable ram air turbine (RAT) and Naval style inflight refueling probe, and positionable flaps, flaperons, spoilerons, leading edge flaps, airbrakes, tailplanes, and tail hook.
Awesome job on the jets! The positioning is perfect.

I meant to comment earlier, but got a little busy. This shot is really excellent. The Blue Angels colors, the custom stickers, and the positioning of the aircraft are all awesome. If you ever to get around to doing the A-4, I'll be looking forward to the Blue Angels variant of that one as well.
