This was only the 2nd air show I've been to so I'm definitely not experienced at this type of photography. But my wife and I really enjoyed it. They moved it back to Labor Day this year which was nice. On a very sad note, Glenn “Skids” Smith of The Hoppers flight team died in a crash here during the first day of the show (9/01).

Thanks for the kind comments guys.

I have to admit that I found photographing the prop planes much more difficult than the jets. My keeper rate for the prop planes was far lower. I was intent on using a slow enough shutter speed to get a full 360 prop blur. However, I rarely do the kind of panning with the camera required to follow something moving as fast as an airplane. Plus, it was kind of crowded so I didn't have room to move freely. I got better as the afternoon went on, but about the time I seemed to be getting the hang of it, it was time for the Thunderbirds.
