Thanks for the comments.

I was indeed happy with the results :-)

I had some trouble tracking fighters at long range and it was difficult at times to lower the shutter speed enough for movement in propellers without over exposing.

I think I just have to put those things down to my cameras limitations.

I'm really referring to some of the shots I didn't share here.



A pair of Lynx heli's were doing a display, but the shots were almost a complete whiteout if I went below 1/250sec.

I just wanted to thank everyone for the tips and advice given here. I was at an airshow this past weekend and found a lot of useful info in this thread.
