Lancaster of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight overhead RAF Kemble (now Cotswold Airport) 17 Sept 2011

Prop blur not visible at this size. I need to work on my panning technique to be more confident of using a slower shutter speed and achieve pleasing prop blur.

Yes you could try your panning, but I like this as it is. For some reason this is my favourite aeroplane.

This is a great shot with a lovely sky.

A shutter speed of 1250th, as used, will stop the motion, as will anything over 800th. I photographed this Lanc recently and used 500th sec. I find between 320th and 500th is the optimum for me, particularly with the heavy 300mm, which makes the old arm ache after a while. Try the slower speed and see how you get on.
