The Arch of Protection by DarinK The Arch of Protection by DarinK
Backstory:There is a tradition that dates back several hundreds years for each graduating class of newly minted fighter pilots. After the completion of graduation ceremonies, each pilot immediately boards his jet and flies through what is known as The Arch of Protection.

No one knows who the first pilot to do this was, or exactly how the tradition started, but flying through the Arch was said to offer protection and safety for fighter pilots while on patrol.

Done with Vue 10, 3ds Max, Geocontrol2, and Photoshop. Textures on the planet from NASA: visibleearth.nasa.gov/view.php…

"I looked at some of the wallpapers in the thread, the very first one is mine too." 

One thousand pardons for the non-acknowledgement..:(....

That was prior to my doing this gig. I will speak to the people involved. Thanks for the reminder.:)

An to this world, the place looks like sites of the red stone structures of Utah. The idea of fighter jets flying though this seems like it be daunting, but I figure impressive to witness. Again, another impressive landscape to witness, and the form well done I do say, it is nice work in this design. :)
