    Amazing shots!!! Wow
    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    I keep coming back to this thread to look at these photos - something I rarely do. They really are terrific, Chris! I love the BA with the fire in the background, and the head-on of Fat Albert, with all four full prop discs is fantastic! Amazing photos!

    Chris you're too kind. That shot I got was being in the right place at the right time... pure luck. I just pressed the trigger and got lucky... all I do is hold steady and fire (seriously) and just mental panning not even concentrating on the action, just keeping the damn thing in the center and not clip wings.

    You did very well with these... just excellent stuff man!

    GUYS THANK YOU FOR ALL GOOD WORDS :) It is always extra motivation and kind of "pay check" after long hours in Lightroom and at the air show :)

    Im actually planning to be in El Centro in February.... One of the Squadrons invited me to help with photo project :)

    Congratz, I would like to eventually make this show but it is going to be hard as I'm more of a Thunderbird guy and would rather go to there homecoming lol. If only they would do them on separate weekends.
