Very nice. I offer my humble efforts at something similar, taken at the
Chicago Air&Water show in August:

Panasonic FZ5. Sadly, the Thunderbirds had to cancel their planned
appearance. On their first show (on Saturday), two of the planes got a
bit too close together, and a missile rail got knocked off one and fell
into the lake. Ergo, no Thunderbirds on Sunday. Plenty of other stuff,
though.

Good shots Bret... BTW, what's with the odd 'ringed' appearance of the
exhaust plume of the Starfighter in #51468616 (first image)? Anybody know?

Shock waves in the afterburner plume. Very normal.

Nice, but I noticed something here:

Canon EOS 20D ,Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM
1/640s f/5.0 at 280.0mm iso400 full exif

How can you get the focal length to 280 mm on a 70-200mm. Has a 2x convert
been used here?

More likely a 1.4x converter.

It is probably a calculated focal length.
the 20D has a 1.6X factor sensor (APS size), so the reported focal
length would be multiplied by 1.6 to get the 280mm.

I'm not sure that's it. My Nikon 70-200 will read 140-400mm with the 2x
converter installed. The only difference is that it will read f/5.6 instead
of f/2.8.

2X = 2 stops

Except that 200 times 1.6 is 320. It's obviously the 1.4x
teleconverter that was used with the lens. Besides, I've got
the Digital Rebel with the same crop factor and it doesn't do
any such calculation when reporting the focal length.
