Pas de deux in the air

A while ago I went to an air show at Duxford in England, near Cambridge. It was incredible to watch! And much harder to photograph than I even imagined: fast-moving targets maneuvering unpredictably (which, admittedly, is the whole point). During one segment two 1940’s Pitts biplanes gracefully danced with each other in the skies – whilst going at racetrack speeds.
