Formation Flying

F-16 fighting Falcons of Singapore's Black Knight perform at the Singapore Air Show 2008. I was on board the ship and my H7 camera with 15x zoom was inadequate to cover a airshow. But fortunately for me, these aircraft preferred to carry out their low level acrobatic over sea and with a UV filter fitted to my camera managed to photograph these heart pounding maneuvers.
Since these aircraft are at hight speed, there is hardly any time for framing or focusing. Hence I used aperture Priority mode, set the aperture on f/8 and set the focus on infinity and went on a shutter clicking spree and the aircrafts approached me.
