Really nice shots. I particularly like the one of the Osprey.

Nice aviation shots. The Osprey body, I just noticed, looks terrifyingly similar to the Chinook. The Mustang and Memphis Belle make up for it!

One words sums it up for me - WOW!

Shutter speed, exposure, composure, everything, just WOW.

I really need to get to an air show!!!! like the flypast of the Mustang, F15 and F4!!

You can make your work even better when shooting anything with a blade (heli rotor, propeller etc) by dropping your shutter speed. I was not able to check out what you were at as the exif was not there but if you get down to 1/125th to 1/400th then you are going to come up with some movement in them rather than the more unnatural looking freeze. Here is an example of what you can expect at 1/125th.

I wanted to get that...rotor blur on the p-51 would have made the shot perfect.....alas it was my first time shooting prop planes and was still experimenting and not sure what shutter speed to hit for the right effect. Its not too often you get a shot of those planes flying in formation in a perfect pass.......that was my chance.

I was proably around 400-500 for most of those shots if my memory is right...and handheld.
