Great pictures. The meeting of two planes left me with a shiver down the spine.

the above were taken with a Canon 7D with a Tamron 18-270 VC... other than the aperture sticking a few times, the Tamron kept up with the high frame rate of the 7D, and generally kicked out some good photos.

The 7D was MADE for air shows, it'd be the one thing I'll miss it for (since gone to FF).

The image was my first attempt at stitching multiple shots together as a panorama. 

My last mission in the AF, March 2009, flight deck of a C-130E.  A 1962 model aircraft.  Talk about high-tech...

thanks! I really love that shot. I attribute it good timing and the quick reflexes of my 7D! I also have a shot from that burst of them when they are exactly crossing each other, but this one shows much better.

Here are a few from the Chicago Air and Water Show.

I love this one. The snowy background really sets the scene and the perspective is very interesting. How did you get that perspective?

Love the old prop planes of WWII.  Most of these from the Chino Ca. airshow in 2011.

Basically you climb a 500" mountain and let it fly below you at 250". Of course the trick is knowing which valley they are going to use and then hope they do
