Air Force's Best Images
The U.S. Air Force Flickr stream is always full of top-notch images, so we can't imagine how tough it is for them to pick a Military Photographer of the Year. For a week they're posting some of the best submissions (and we're highlighting a few of the awesome aviation picks), so go take a look at the rest. Above, Technical Sergeant Samuel King gave an almost sci-fi look to this CV-22 Osprey hanging in the anechoic chamber at the hangar at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. As the Air Force explains on Flickr:
The chamber is designed to stop internal reflections of electromagnetic waves, as well as insulate from exterior sources of electromagnetic noise to facilitate testing air-to-air and air-to-surface munitions and electronics systems on full-scale aircraft and land vehicles prior to open-air testing.
