250th is a good speed, but you can get away with 320th if you want to be on the safe side. Anything above this and you'll start to freeze the props and that doesn't look good. You could always go lower if you're confident with your panning of course!

How much blur you'll get depends on the aircraft as much as the shutter though - number of blades, RPM etc.

Here's one I took at 125th...

This one was at 1/30th, and there's less blur than above because of the engine power setting/RPM...

And as a rough guide, this one was taken at 320th...

Have to say i am little surprised at the (my perception) of "spotters" and forums such as UKAR.

Havign made several contributions to UKAR and others, i personally do not see any peer pressure coming into play.
There are several photographers who are extremely capable and having met some of them found them to be very positive and helpful. As with any area of specific interest there will be those who come to the attention of others for the sheer enthusiasm they have to their chosen hobby, that said can't say i have come across any UKAR member who taken to rivet counting or such like.
I fully understand the points being made, i just think it was perhaps a little OTT and unjustified.
The true hobbyist/ airshow fan is pretty much taken for granted and has limited access and resources, airshows are primarily aimed at the general public, and lo and behold the public turn up on mass pitch the windbreakers and assorted day out kit without a second thought for anyone else.
The average enthusiast probably contends with kids that are bored and left to run around at will knocking into someone who's hard earned cash is sitting on the end of a decent camera.
As for the type of shots that have been commented about, i personally do not go to an airshow to shoot into the sun to see what dramatic shots i can get, i go for the most part to enjoy the demands of trying to get a nice sharp shot of a well lit aircraft performing.
That as with everyone is their decision om what to shoot and how.
If people don't like the "same view" shots then don't look at them.
At times i actually like to see the differences in what i have captured compared to others, it is a learning curve.
Photography for me isnt pleasing someone or bowing to peer pressure it is sheer enjoyment, if my shots are not good then i try and learn how to improve, one mans view of an image may be totally different to the next mans.

Guess you were around centre of runway, I was up right hand end.

Looks like you took your picture a few tenths of a second after me looking at the position of the undercarrage doors...:D

Beautiful shots John. I sorta spaced out the site at Airliners. Been a while.
I'm an old Oshkosh fan since early 80's.
I restored one of the all time favorites of mine, the Beech Stagger Wing Biplane.
It bellied in, gear up one day.
I spent 5 months every day rebuilding the entire ship. To Paint.
When done, I was taken for a flight never to forget. 2.5G barrel roll included.
Talk about a great aircraft to shoot from with real glass vs the plexiglas of typical general aviation.
Not much beats the roar of radials. P-51C Mustang's, maybe.

Not sure if it´s been mentioned but it also depends on the aircraft being turbo prop or piston engined.
Turbo props can be shot at higher speeds then piston. But I try to stay around 1/250th or slower for all props and as fast as possible for jets.
