The Generation Gap

The Generation Gap

 

Fighter jets are often referred to by their 'generation' as a way of expressing the era and capability that jets of the time represented.

Recently, I was fortunate to capture a modern '5th generation' F-22 Raptor taxiing out behind a '1st generation' Gloster Meteor.

In one shot we can see the significant evolution that has taken place since World War Two when the jet era dawned.
