Bugs - when shooting prop planes or helicopters, try to use a slower shutter speed - something around 1/250 or slower to get more prop blur. It just looks unnatural for props to be so static on a flying aircraft. For example, here's a shot at 1/100:

Thank you for the advice John !
There were only 2-3 helicopters and I had no time to try different combinations and also, I had no tripod and 1/100 would be tragic for the long zoom of HS-20.

More of the time there were jet fighters and this is why I used so quick shutter.

Thank you Dave, There are more ... I'll post them soon.

And some more ...
(no order in the upload)
Some of them are not in perfect IQ, but this is how I managed the camera. If I have more chances, I think I can do better

Hi bugsbunny- nice shots. I'm curious- did you use any exposure bias when shooting into the sky...?

Thank you guys !
I'm always adjusting the exposure ! As I am shooting mainly in Shutter mode, because I use frequently the long zoom, and the first thing is to check the exposure. Even with one-two test pictures.
And especially for the sky, It becomes much more lovely with negative exposure values.
