I went to the Wings Over Gillespie Air Show this weekend, near San Diego, CA.
Turned out to be a nice day for shooting.
Here's a basic run down:
F6F Hellcat and Mitsubishi Zero - “The Battle of Midway” over Gillespie
AD-6 Skyraider - Demonstration, L-29 Thunder Delfins
Julie Clark in the Mopar T-34, FM2, F8F, T-28's and more.

Here's a gallery of photos from the show:

WOW, I really love that first shot. It's so nicly croped and placed. and that it was taken when it was flying says a lot about your skills. Keep up the good work.

Excellent shots! :)

Nice crop, you must have been close, or had one massive lens. :D

Okay, now I'm kicking myself.

I was going to head down there on Saturday (I live about three miles from there), but other things came up and I never made it.

Gonna' have to change that next year...

Great shots! You are really showing what that lens can do. I also like your screen name. I belong to a Marauder club, but it's nothing to do with planes. It's a car club. Thanks for posting, would love to see more.
