In addition to the comments about exposure, which are correct of course, notice that many of the best examples of successful air show photography posted in this thread are not strongly back-lit. They show the well-lit side of the plane, or even the top when banking. Based on my extremely limited experience of this stuff, that's the real secret.

+ 1 to that too !! Far too many airshows place the spectator to the North ( or east ) of the runway so that photographs are shot into or nearly into the sun. Of course many of them don't have a choice for one reason or another . Thankfully Fairford doesn't suffer from this particular issue !

You'll never find hairs on a duck's egg, you will always find hairs on an ape. It is only the hairs on a gooseberry what stops it from being a grape.
