    Raptor and Lightening pilots are saying "faster faster" and the Mustang pilot is saying "slow down"!

    Haven't seen that show since I was knee high to a grasshopper and that has been a long time ago. Thanks for sharing.

    Great job capturing those birds. Not always easy to get the right exposure for max detail on the camo'ed up plane. Thanks for posting. Always enjoy seeing the old warbirds.

    Michael....Those are so cool! Out of curiosity, what shutter speed were you shooting at in order to give blur to the props?

    Thanks for the kind comments. Spaightlabs, spelling was never by forte. Not sure why my spell check didnt catch that. Thanks :)
    LD for the prop blur they were between 1/400 to 800. I tried to go lower and got a couple keepers at 1/250 but my panning was not up to snuff and not only were the props blurred so were the planes.

    Michael...Like you, I never had that much luck at the lower suggested shutter speeds. Your shots came out great.
