"I'm an aerial flight test photographer for Lockheed Martin," says Bellay. "The view is spectacular from 10,000 feet. In my job I'm challenged to capture the F-35 in many scenarios allowing only time to record flight data. This photograph is important to me because I was given 10 minutes before landing for a photo op. There are aerial freelancers who get an entire flight just for photo ops, so when aerial flight test photographers get the chance, the end results mean a lot to us."
