I know theres a lot to be desired as far as quality goes, but I am happy as a beginner on my being able to get the shot considering speed of the planes,location and lack of range on my lens. these were cropped of course.

Also, don't forget to look at the people. Sometimes it's very worth turning around just when the show's getting most interesting.

A small second body of some kind with a wider lens can be very handy.

Also, pay attention to things like shoes, hats, and not to carry *too much* gear to walk a long way in, even if almost anything might be useful at an air show. (Nice to have friends.) I definitely think of these, because for someone as sun-sensitive and arthritic as myself, it's basically insane to attend an air show of any kind, even on a good day, but one day when I found myself shooting that huge one in Wisconsin (How huge could it be? I asked, unknowingly, applying like SPF 80 with a hose... ) Toward afternoon, I saw some folks doing almost as badly with all they'd been carrying all day. Not that I could blame them for wanting to bring nice stuff.
