This guy impresses me more... and he did a lot of his work with flash bulbs... only one shot at the shot... train/light/bulbs only there once a day.
Money and time can accomplish anything, I'm sure 80% of the people shooting professionally/or seriously can do the "jet" photo if the client requested it and you had access to the lighting.
Personally I could do it with my gear I have now, but I would have been un-elegant and used gasoline generators to power the lights. Or run a few cords from the tower on a small strip.
Look at the 6th image in this series...(link below) I stopped a shot-gun shell impact with no timer no nothing on the first try. Client was too cheap to let me rent the shutter trigger from Calumet in Chicago. Just about everything I do is on the cheap here... I resent it sometimes, the Bosch advert was done in an abandoned building the AD found... I told her we were trespassing... but the shoot went on.
I was surprised the first shot was the best... we fired about 10 shells , early or late on most of the others.
I drive a used older Audi... perhaps I can buy his used Porsche one day. I'm happy here. Good/day/evening apug peoples.
+1 Matt from the UK -- cheers.
