...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.
