The perfect Military Monday Sunset with a lil’ flare.
Tonight, I’ve got a kick-A collection of HIGH-RES defensive measures deploying from Heavy Lifter fixed wings to Fight Jets (couple Allies in the mix) and a few thumping “Get to the Choppa” pics too.
If you’ve watched the video, then ya noticed a few KNOCKERs in the mix…that was actually NOT part of the plan.
Yata, yata, my After Effects is having issues with text over-lays. Basically, the video sections are freezing-up. As per usual, I ain’t taking NO for an answer…yep, ADD a few hot chicks for a touch of randomness.
