Military aircraft are incredible examples of engineering and human ingenuity. And, aside from their advance technical and scientific magnificence, aircraft are also amazing to behold.
Photographer Blair Bunting has captured the stark elegance of some of the most recognisable US military aircraft — the SR-71, the F-22, and a US Thunderbird F-16.
Below are some of Bunting’s favourite photos from his SR-71, F-22, and F-16 photo shoot.

The F-22 is America's most advanced aircraft currently deployed, and is also the country's first fifth-generation stealth fighter.
