I hope you take this properly because it's meant to help you in the future. This thread is about panning & aircraft photography with the emphasis being to show motion in your photo. The idea is to use a slow enough shutter speed to blur the background (not easy in a photo shot against the sky but clouds do make it possible) & prop blur so we know the engine is running. A smooth pan & a low shutter speed done right is the key to this type of photo. You need to examine the samples posted & think about trying to improve your technique the next time you get an opportunity like that. Shutter speeds of 1/320 & slower are suggested & as you get better with your panning you slow it down another step.

This one is from the Air Races I attended. In this image he was flying through the three-pylon chicane.

1/1250 is just TOO fast for any panning blur. It's hard to get much rotor blur & a clean shot but the tail rotor will be blurred at prop plane shutter speeds.

Driving past an airshow, no way to use slow shutter and blur the rotors...but, the tiny wee fighter in the background is panning...sort of...;-)a
