I do my shooting outside the show. The only time I went in they did not fly due to fog. I said never would I mess with that cluster ever again. Too much work to lug everything in and a chair. I just go to a business that is closed by the airport and watch for free and no parking issues...ever

Well, you have some fantastic pics there, Jim. That's the main point. :)

After having done a few of those things my final take-away has always been:   you would not have to pay those guys a dime-they are having so much fun they'd do it all for free.

Some good stuff you got there. Big lens with stabilizing?  Good work, regardless.

Shot with my 400mm and it has no IS. I use a tripod and try to keep my speeds as fast as I can along with keeping my ISO as low as I can. 

I like to think of it as good practice for shooting birds in flight ;)
