Skywatch Friday - back in the air

I'm a sucker for an airshow. If it's on I'm there and nothing will keep me away, because I get such a thrill watching these machines doing their thing in the sky.

These shots were taken at the 2014 airshow in Port Elizabeth.

The big mango and the Silver Falcons (SA Air Force aerobatics team) going through their paces


When it comes to versatility and thrills, you just can't beat the Pitts Specials


 .......especially when they do the "mirror"...............................


..........or how about doing an inside loop?

I;m a sucker too. We get the Red Arrows once a year and it's always a boon fest for photographers. These are fantastic.

Well done. I have never tried to photograph an air show, but I can see the challenges involved in getting images as good as these. Nice work.
