They look all good.  I went to the Jones Beach airshow (in the Memorial Day weekend each year) in the past Sunday but shoot with 5DIII instead.  Unfortunately previously planned USAF Thunderbirds performance is cancelled, actually all US military jets are grounded in this year due to the sequestration budget cut.  Many airshows are cancelled all together.  This time they are able to invite a solo CF-18 for the last show, the only jet plane flying in the show from Canada that is pretty embarrassing.

...great set of pics. B-17 and P-51 , my all-time favorite warbirds.

I noticed your shutter speed, ISO and aperture. Mine is always higher and faster, but yours show.. slower is better sometimes.

Thanks. I tried lower shutter despite it means get lower hit rate. I fired many shots on the planes that usually will fly in a few rounds and will get some sharp photos. The most difficult planes to shoot with on my experiences are those fast-flying prop-driven planes such as Embry-Riddle Eagle 580 by Matt Chapman or red-color Oracle one by Sean D. Tucker. They fly very fast but yet I cannot use too fast shutter. Most shots at 1/500 on these two planes are blurry. I used to shoot at 1/800 and reduced to 1/640 this time and luckily still got many relative sharp photo. It becomes even more difficult this time I used 500L especially if with 1.4x TC attached that becomes 700mm compared to 400mm before from 100-400L. I didn't walk into sands on the beach this time as I did in last year so shoot from boardwalk cross a pretty deep beach so had to use 500mm lens.
