    Well without a doubt, getting these shots was the hardest I've worked yet for photos and I'm not even sure how I feel about the results. I would really appreciate comments and critique. Also tips on getting better in-flight shots would be appreciated (although I'm thinking a large part is luck on getting a good one).

    Nate,
    What are you using for lighting? It's a bit harsh. You may want to try some sort of diffuser.

    I like #2 the best.

    Lighting is a single SB-600 and it is diffused. Some of them are a little harsh now that you mention it and I'm not sure why. I probably need to use a little more negative flash compensation possibly.

    Also the sun was pretty harsh here yesterday so that might have played a role. My settings usually block out most of the light but I'm not sure that happened yesterday since it was so bright.
