I work for a police department, and we have a joke when we stop someone for suspicion of DWI just to find they are elderly, and doing the best that they can. We call it DWO - Driving While Old.

I also use Carbonite - currently have nearly 715GB stored there. I purchase by the 3 yr contract and it is about $60 a year. They also will have it for recovery for about a month after you delete something, and I have gone in and recovered something that was deleted in error. I recommend them.

I was lucky - I was shooting in burst mode, he was traveling at about 470mph, and it was one of the last photos in the burst. As you see at the top of the photo, it cut off part of the wingtip, so felt lucky to have even gotten it. It was also good to have gotten the after burners as well. I have shot 6 different air shows so far, about 5000 photos, and this was the first time for the air vapor trails.

I have shot a few and found that if your shoot at 640/sec - you get a blur in the prop which shows motion in the prop. For jets, I move up to 1000/sec. They recommend shooting a shot at green grass to get an idea of what the normal aperture would be an setting up your camera that way in manual mode. I would recommend cleaning your sensor/mirror as shooting in the sky will show up every dust speck on the picture. I went here when I first started shooting airshows: http://www.richard-seaman.com/Photography/Airshows/index.html

Good luck, and we might run into each other someday at a show.
