I don't know that they needed to be edited really, but not bad! Would've loved to have been there myself.

Heres some shots from todays shoot after a successful flight of #3!

Todays lighting and use of 31L made for an amazing shoot of the 748 and 788!

Even Bald Eagles like this plane!

This plane is too big even for the smallest setting of 55MM, so a nice smoke shot but the back half got cut off :(
