Needless to say, having the sun behind the flying displays makes for lousy photos; are there any shows in or near Mountain Time where the sun is behind the crowd instead?

There are factors like runway north/south or east/west, and which side you can have access to.

At Noon, its going to be difficult.

I sympathise with Jim because that's exactly the problem we have here unfortunately - north/south runway with the crowd on the eastern flightline and the aerial displays starting from 10am so there's not a lot of time with the subject well lit
