I think we are spoiled on this board - There are so many top quality photos, and posted with such regularity... it takes something very special to stand out. But some of these shots certainly do that. The F16 cockpit/nose shot in particular... it's so close and sharp you'd think it was taken from another aeroplane, flying in tight formation. Amazing! Then there's the meteor cockpit closeup which goes a step further - unbelievable! It's like you were hanging from the engine intake or something.
I'm sure you have some nice camera gear to get those shots from the ground... but much more than that: you have the ability to use your gear to best effect and get those shots. This is more evident in some of your other threads (eg. this year's Flying Legends) where you've got shots so close you can poke the pilot in the eye, you used a slow shutter speed for prop-blur... and yet the aeroplane itself is as sharp as anything! As a novice to airshow photography, I am in awe.
