Ohh I like the last one!

Looks like the lighting situation wasn't too favorable though.

Hi Jordan, It was a good day to visit the show. Not too hot, no rain and a light breeze. We really enjoyed it. Indeed, for photography the weather wasn't too favourable. A colleague of mine went the second day. He made better airshots and the pictures he showed of the static line had more punch.

Nice!!!! I love aircraft. I'll have to dig out one of the C5 Galaxy I took last week to post.

The f16 is pretty sweet with the water vapor coming off the wings.

You done good!!

Well actually, those are smoke pods on the tip of the wings. They come in place of the sidewinders (or AMRAAMs?). They produce the "vapour".

Gale,

I had the D70 set to Aperture priority mode and the aperture set to 9. That resulted in a shutter time of 1/320 seconds. From the EXIF:
ExposureTime - 1/320 seconds
FNumber - 9.00
ExposureProgram - Aperture priority

Thanks for the comment.
