This is a nice setup, but no motion: no 'exhaustion vapor' coming out from any of the aircrafts, and also, I would expect a propeller spinning with a couple 1000 rpm to show at least a little motion blur even at very short exposure time....and the cockpit is open in all the 3 jets.

That's almost eerie, I don't know why. Still, it's very cool. What kind of jets are these?

Love the composition of "generation" of war aviators. While the jet craft moves forward, that "stop motion" of the RF propeller is definining of your image.

I don't know if you were going for humor - but you got it! It appears the old antiquated prop-driven plane is outrunning the newer, faster jets. The best stop-action is the stationary propeller of course (assuming it wasn't feathered!) NIce job on the techie stuff (exposure, shutterspeed, aperture) and the composition.

Nice and sharp, I would maybe have cropped more off all sides except the right. 7

Nice stop action, especially with the propeller visible. I might have tried darkening a little.

Let's see, an A-10, an F-15, and something from very long ago! Nice shot and beautiful cloudless sky. I like it!

Awesome... looks like you went to an air show last weekend also. You must have one awesome lens and/or fantastic seats. Reno? :) Great job.

These planes are not really flying. First the Cockpits are open and they can't fly like that and second there is no exaust and they can not fly at the same speedlong enough for you to capture them in a photo.

nothing special here... they arent flying very fast

The composition could be a bit better. But still a nice shot

A very nice shot, though a touch oversharpened (jaggies on diagonal lines and slight haloing). I could have sworn I saw an image very similar to this some time ago..
