Shots were taken at the Flying Circus Aerodrome in Bealeton, Virginia.
In looking at the online photos, I notice that a couple could be sharper - I think the originals are ok, and that may just be a consequence of the export and upload. I'll check it. Any thoughts on composition, exposure, and other factors would be welcomed, and appreciated.

Nice shots, but there are three things I'd suggest need improving:
2. Too dark
Although back-lit, I personally like the the second one best. It also needs to be centered better, as it's currently a little low and too the left (I guess you were trying to keep the contrail in the frame). You could remedy that easily enough when you re-crop.
I think the third one would be the easiest to clean up, as it has the best lighting.

Thanks very much for taking the time and providing the feedback. I'll work on reprocessing the images.
You're correct on the second image - I was limited, due to field operations, to shooting that side of the aircraft. The contrail was an interesting coincidence, and I was thinking the sky was suggestive of the aircraft in the air.
Again, I really appreciate the time and the feedback.
