Very cool photo!

Out of curiosity (I don't shoot planes so I don't now)... why shoot at f/5? Doesn't seem necessary for the DOF, and the lens is surely sharp & contrasty enough at 2.8 already, right?

Because the Thunderbirds fly in groups of 6 and then break off into groups of 4 and  2 etc.

Shooting at f/5 helps me keep them all in focus when they come by in a group. At least that's my plan and you can never predict what they are doing as they basically come out of nowhere.

Here is another.
