I wanted to share a few more pics from the air show we caught; this was a race set up by Geico between their monster racing speed boat and two of their stunt bomber planes:
The race took place right in front of us, a couple hundred feet out in the water, and it was incredible to be that close. We decided to move closer:
Both planes and the boat were moving very fast, so I basically pointed the camera, prayed, and clicked.
This was probably the best shot of the day -- not perfect or centered or anything other than strictly amateur, but it gives you an true idea of how close we were. Also, while I think the announcer called it a tie, I'm pretty sure the boat won. :)
