A note to all who plan to photograph: Get there EARLY! Due to the flightline facing WSW there will be strong backlighting from noon onwards. Also, setting up to the south of show center will help cut the angle on the sun somewhat, but expect lower quality as the day progresses.

PS. don't make the rookie mistake I made the first time out, use a shutter speed of 1/1000 minimum for jets.

We were out there Saturday. It was warm, but the breeze kept everything tolerable. I would highy recommend the AA/AE Captain's Club if you can swing the $$$. The AA/Komen 777 was really neat to see up close. The wind kept the Golden Knights on the ground, and I've definitely seen tighter shows buy the T-birds - blame it on the gusts aloft.
