The sky was overcast with a helping of haze during the 2016 Jacksonville Air Show. Color images look dull without a nice blue sky. Black-and-white (done right) doesn't have that problem1.
For example, here's the Blue Angels in Black and White2.
I prefer working in black-and-white anyways. Something working on these images reinforced yet again.
These images are being called by a responsive images loader I'm working on. It's still a work in progress. If you see something weird, or no images at all, please let me know. If this tech gibberish doesn't make any sense to you, you can safely ignore it.
