I look at the size of the engines,size of the props and finally the size of the aircraft and ….looks like it should not be able to fly…and carry so much payload. Nice angles and images.:-)

Wish I had just a bit more reach than the 70-200mm. Maybe next year.

And both of you need to learn how to lower your shutter speeds to get some prop blur. Look at all the submissions with prop blur & you decide which looks correct.

It would had required using a ND filter to get down to 1/60 as it was 1pm and pretty bright. I have shots that I went for prop blur that turned out well. Also with my very dirty sensor I would had spent a ton more time cleaning the shots.

But thanks for the advice. :-)

No, you don't need an ND filter, and you don't need 1/60th to get decent prop blur. Looking at the EXIF, you shot it at 1/1250, f/4.4, and ISO 320. First, drop the ISO as low as your camera will go - ISO 100 if you can, then close down the aperture, you don't need to be nearly so wide. You can get decent prop blur at 1/200 or 1/250, and at ISO 100 should have an aperture that works. Yes, you will likely have some dust spots - I've had shots that looked like I sneezed on my sensor, but you work with what you have.

Both of these are at 1/250, f/13, ISO 100 and both were taken between 1 and 2pm on a sunny afternoon - no, you're not going to get a full circle of prop blur, but it's obvious the prop is turning.

I'm saying I knew what I needed to do to get the prop blur. I get to go to 1 airshow maybe every 3 years and this is only my 2nd try. Last year (and the last airshow) I still had an xti and a 28-135IS lens. This year I stepped up to the 1dmkiii. For this outing also dragging on a wagon my tired 8 year old I went for capturing in focus all the shots I could of flying aircraft which meant I purposely left the ss higher to capture everything from the f18 to the prop planes. I do have shots that I slowed the shutter speed to about 1/100th to get proper prop blur.

I was just happy with the shots I got as I never get an opportunity to play at an airshow. If I go alone next time and bring a monopod and concentrate I will get proper prop blur shots. I do appreciate the lesson, and always take criticism to better my craft, and will try to utilize the better equipment to my benefit next time.

I can understand you don't do aircraft much
My tip along with others is to go for the safety shots first and for props typically 1/360th to (1/500th extreme for props) to ensure you get what you want.
Aircraft displays usually do a number of passes where you can then lower shutter for each pass. I set up my C1 and C2 for props and jets. Simple switch
After my safety shots I drop down to 1/200th or slower if you have good panning ability.

Custom functions on the selector dial. I guess the 1Ds don't have that.
My bad or canons bad?

This is just your standard 1929 biplane replica with a lear jet engine attached. lol Pretty funny to see this screaming across the sky and hear the roar of a jet engine.

I agree! I love all your shots!

I also agree on the prop blur, I tried shooting slower but it's not easy when panning 5 aircraft, maybe when I have more experience with air shows - this was my 1st one ever!
