Yes, afterburners selected only for engines #1 and #2. Strange...

Great shot Kent - perfect timing! Looks like the blast from #1 and 2 produced a once-in-a-lifetime diffraction of the sunset :)
kent matthiesenPhoto Uploader Thank you Mark. Correct on your science for the tongue in cheek description ;)

That's a fantastic shot. I see you used your special after burner lens filter.
