Besides generally loving all kind of aviation photos,
as far as Im concerned, I specially like low altitude overview shots of airports or airport perimeters (fly by's, finals). Especially of some rather exotic airports - for example in South Asia (Pakistan India B'Desh Nepal S -Lanka). I also like overview shots if they come with precise descpription of heading and position.

Retro-jets, in particular from the late 60s to the mid 80s.
As for action, I love 'threshold' shots where the plane is only seconds from touchdown, usually shot from behind and over the approach lights. I also like 'vapour' shots, where rain or mist is evident over the wings and the engines as a plane is roating or landing. Shots where you have dramatic backdrop ..i.e. a skylines (see Mark Garfinkel or Vasco Garcia's work from Boston), moutains (Andrew Hunt's shot from ZHR is a classic example of this), ect....Joe Pries and Michael Mclauglin's work from NYC's airports are first rate examples on how do shoot a classic 50mm profile shot.
