Default Things with Wings Pitts bi-planes

I was watching the local aerobatic club doing some stunt flying when these two did a high speed pass.

Nice capture, Bob!

It almost looks like they're touching each other.

The cloud in the lower right adds a natural border.

Cheers

Thanks for the comments! Here is a photo of the yellow Pitts from this morning with much better light, the one from yesterday was midday in really harsh light.

Those close-ups are extremely good!
The shot of them passing each other as others noted looks pretty close.

I'm sure the two Pitts in the high-speed pass were not as close to each others as the telephoto made it seem. None-the-less two Pitts over the runway at the same time requires a lot of trust and coordination between the pilots as pilot visibility is absolutely awful according to my Dad who has flown that model.
