America was plunged into darkness yesterday as the rare full eclipse was viewed and photographed by millions – but of course, Red Bull gives us wings!

Sulfur Springs Texas was cast into shadow yesterday at approximately 1:40 pm local time and lasted roughly 4 minutes. This was the amount of time photographers Dustin Snipes and Mason Mashon had to shoot one of the most creative photographs of their careers as they photographed two Red Bull aerobatic planes flying in formation through the eclipse.
