Welcome back to the sports forum - it's been a while.

Some feedback on the shots:

1. I like the composition but it looks like a heavy crop - there's a lot of lost detail.

2. Looks decent sharp-wise but it's underexposed. I see you used the 'action' pre-fab. If your camera lets you, I suggest using exposure compensation in that mode. Looks like it was a bright day which means the sky is really going to be an issue. But if you have to choose between sky exposed properly and planes, choose the planes.

3. Pretty decent shot. For prop planes it's best to use a slower shutter speed though so you get more blur from the prop. This shot was 1/750. You want to get it down around 1/160 or so. This is a good reason to shoot manual or shutter priority with exposure compensation for props (manual or aperture priority with EC for jets).

4. same as above plus the exposure issue. Exposure on this shot is easily corrected in post.

5 & 6 - sharpness looks decent but underexposed and too fast shutter speed so prop is frozen.

Airshows are trickier than people think. Exposures can be difficult. And, if you haven't done them before you probably wouldn't think to use a slow shutter speed for the props.
