Skywatch Friday - The sky was also nice

The Black Widow is always a hit at the local South African airshows and is is a lot easier to photograph on the ground than in the air. She is a Mirage IIIC, a single-seat interceptor and first flew in October 1960.

By the way it was a beautiful day with bright blue skies, in case you did not notice.

You can view many great pictures from around the world at the Skywatch site

Great looking jet! Nice sleek lines and the paint job suits her name!

i too love what Blogger has done to make it easier for us to delete unwanted comments (spam).
