Sorry I tried a search and can not seem to find this.
I could sware I read a post here with a sketch of a typical air show layout advising where to position yourself for various shot's etc.
If I was dreaming slap me. If anyone remembers this and can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I am planning on going to the Thunder over Michigan air show on July 18 or 19
My bad for not book marking the post.
Cheers

Thanks that is great,
However the one I was looking for was like a hand sketch that showed approximate flight lines and best areas to stand to take various types of pictures. I think it was just a regular Photog Visitor to air shows that posted it as advice.

Cheers

The showline faces NW and parallels Runway 23 if I am not mistaken.

Try this this might be of help also

Unfortunately there is no "typical airshow layout..." Different airfields are oriented to different points of the compass and the direction of the sun's transit over the course of the day will vary by time of year and latitude. To come up with the optimum location to shoot from, you have to research each airshow individually. And sometimes, you have no choice where you can shoot from because of crowd line restrictions.

Andrew, A2EVOMR, gave me this link (http://www.detroitspotters.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=685), but it's not for the show. It's for shooting outside the airport, which is where I'll be this year. When the Angels are there, the best place will probably be at the North East end of the crowd. You'll have a good angle on the A/C, & of the military reenactment on the ground.
