You should try a slower shutter speed to capture some prop blur. Otherwise, it looks like a model aircraft, or an aircraft in which the motor has stopped.

That is where the fine art of panning pays off. Using a slower shutter speed and moving the camera with the motion of the aircraft, it is possible to keep the aircraft sharp and capture the prop blur. With practice it improves. Depending on the RPM of the prop, you could use a shutter speed of about 1/60th of a second. Here is a fine example from a posting on www.airliners.net with due credit to the photographer Stuart Freer.

This one was shot at 1/400 sec. Borderline, but usable, could have been slower.
