thanks guys, i shot 339 pics and probably have just over a dozen that turned out ok, hoping that ratio improves next weekend with the experience i gained today.

Wow....way better than my pictures! What a great day it was! Bright blue skies, just a few small clouds, very clear and great picture taking opportunities during the morning especially.

I was there too! What a blast!
The show was well organized and presented. http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n206/strider_07/RussellAviationGroupAirshow.jpg
The Spit and the 109 were a highlight but close behind were the Hurricane, Avenger, B-17 (done up as the Memphis Bell), C-47 (in a D-Day paint scheme), Beech, 3 Harvards, Fokker DR1A and B, Nieuport, Sopwiths, and of course the Lanc.
The sound of the Spit's Merlin gave me goosebumps!I was @ 40 feet away when it started up and, like about 100 others near, jerked a little when it fired up. It did formation passes with the 109 and the sound of each was distinct, ominous and beautiful. Same with the Lanc's 4 Merlins going by at the pilot's announced-over-the-PA comm of 200 knots.
Continuous commentary and anectdotes on the PA made the experience all the more enjoyable. Think I'll go again today!
Cheers! Strider1

It should be there, at the bottom of the post, one of the three symbols 'reply with quote', <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">'edit or delete message' </span>, and 'report this post'. It won't show if you logged out after posting though.
