    Wow, these are great action shots. Looks like it was supersonic, and fairly close, so your tracking was fantastic. I especially like 3, but the last three are great, not that the first are not, just that the attitude of the plane is more to my liking.

    Nice job panning on this set - I like the clean focus on the jet in these images. Very dramatic captures.

    Excellent work here Jeff!

    I really like the ones where the smoke comes off the body. So #1 and 4 would be my favorites. In #3 and 6, I think I would darken the sky just a bit. The brighter sky with the darker plane does provide lot's of contrast, but I think a darker/richer sky could look cool too.

    As some what of an aviation fan, those are great.
