Hi, Ian.

Wow! Some of those photos are amazing. I couldn't stop looking. After checking them all, I got to work. First pass got me down to 28, second pass to 20, but it took several more passes to get to my top 12:

12 points for 086 - men and machine
11 points for 018 - Pitt showing off on the ground
10 points for 003 - color and clarity of precise flight team
09 points for 035 - plane with twisted trail
08 points for 078 - plane at rest below the big sky
07 points for 009 - the dark side of aviation
06 points for 004 - triplanes traveling together
05 points for 063 - helicopter as aviation art
04 points for 090 - lines of flight
03 points for 051 - "what a tangled web we weave"
02 points for 048 - aerial maneuver
01 point for 101 - red from above

That means some very good photos are not on my list.

Sincerely,
Anne
