Here's a couple shots from my first air to air photo shoot. I had a great time. The pilot of my plane removed the back door prior to the flight. I was strapped in with a harness that prevented me from getting too close to the opening. It was a blast, but things happen quickly. It was difficult for me as a first timer to think ahead far enough to plan exactly where I wanted the plane to be for the upcoming scenery. A few times my pilot mentioned something that was coming up and that helped immensely, but a lot of the flight was with the camera on burst mode. It was a hazy day but I think I still managed to pull off a few good shots. 45 minutes of flying. ~650 shots.

I appreciate any critiques or suggestions on how to improve for next time.

Looks like you had a great time up there. #2 & #4 might benefit from a bump in contrast like #3 which is your best of the series.
You might also try a pola filter if you get another chance.

All the shots seem like you captured them correctly (shutter speed).

I like #2 the best. The lines that the water created in the land adds to the flow of the aircraft.

#4 seems that the tail of the aircraft is high which gives it a strange look.
