Two Blue Angels meet in mid-air

Hi

Friends and I went to an airshow this weekend.  Since I have been at airshows and have seen Blue Angels performed previously, the purpose of this photography excursion was to try to capture two Blue Angels traveling in opposite directions and "intersecting" somewhere around the viewing center.  Since I close one eye when taking pictures, having one eye to track one plane and another eye on another plane is out of the question.  My approach: track one plane, pan with it.  Use my ears to guess where the other plane is.  As you can see, this approach relies luck (on the timing).  Below is a picture I took there.  It was close (but on cigar).  Luck was not on my side.

Are there other approaches to take this kind of pictures?

Thanks and thanks for viewing

Duy
