Hi all,

Towards the end of the show the moon was rising to the east and provided some good opportunity even though they were long distance.

A solid set of photos - really nice!
A great collection you have on flickr.

Looks like one of the better air shows in the US.
Added to my bucket list! ;-)a

Thank you Frank, Reading's always a decent show, and the aviation is just half of it, they have a ton of re-enactors and vendors selling memorabilia. If you're into WWII, you should make a trip!

Thank you sir! My girlfriend keeps telling me I need to start getting prints of my shots.
