[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An afterburner (or a reheat) is an additional component present on some jet engines, mostly military supersonic aircraft. Its purpose is to provide an increase in thrust, usually for supersonic flight, takeoff and for combat situations. Afterburning is achieved by injecting additional fuel into the jet pipe downstream of (i.e. after) the turbine. The advantage of afterburning is significantly increased thrust; the disadvantage is its very high fuel consumption and inefficiency, though this is often regarded as acceptable for the short periods during which it is usually used.

Well done,

Hello Eleu,

A Raptor F-22 on full thrust is looking fabullous. The pilot must be delighted to have the honour to fly world's top fighter jet. And your composition is impeccable. Light blue sky is looking fabulous. A valued image my friend, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,
