Default P-51 Mustang fly-free day...

nice weather for a change today, so i scooted over to the airfield to watch a free flight demo of some restored WWII P-51 fighters. i'm not a huge fan of the Mustangs... there's just too many of 'em around for me to be that impressed - but they were fun to watch nonetheless. and it reminded me how out of practice i am at high-speed panning! still, i did manage a few good shots... all with 40D and 100-400 @ various focal lengths and settings..

very nicely done, like the panning on the last 3 shot. Give a very good sense of speed with the clouds and trees.

Excellent shots. The last one with the panning really conveyts the speed of the aircraft. I am unable to read the EXIF...What gear did you use?

Especially enjoyed the "C" as I've never had the opportunity to see one in flight.
