Great shot. The sharpness is great. I only regret you don't have the top of the corner (drawn by the smoke) in the frame.
Very good job!

As beautiful as your pic is, is the danger of such maneuvers. Many decades ago, I remember watching a "bombburst" in which all 6 planes in verticle flight separated in 6 directions & curved back toward earth. Curving more, they all crossed the "centerline" near the ground from 6 different directions. First one plane went thru the "intersection", then a second. The plane that was supposed to be third thru the intersection was about a second late. Thus the third & fourth plane screamed toward the intersection on a collision course. The pilot of the third plane, knowing he was late & heading toward collision, hauled on his yoke. The plane jerked up about a 100feet in less than a second & the third & fourth plane went thru the intersection simultaneously but about the 100 foot vertical distance apart. & then the fifth & sixth planes crossed in sequence without incident. It was so quick I don't think most of the viewers at the airfair knew what went on, but some people did because I heard individual gasps around the crowd. After that incident, I never saw a multiple jet crossover unless each plane went thru the intersection at a substantially different altitude.

That was a great description of a near tradgedy, Bill! I can't say that I would want to witness it but if I did I would hope to have the AI Servo mode turned on and the planes in focus!
