Member LTZ470 posted a series of shots of the US Navy Blue Angels practicing over on dpreview.com. All were shot with the Olympus OM-D and Panasonic 100-300mm f4-5.6 lens. I absolutely love that lens!

Also, be sure to visit my friend Rob's flickr sets (username robsv) to see many more AWESOME airshow shots, including the Blue Angels and many others.

These amazing technical marvel aircraft test the limits of photographic equipment. It is absolutely amazing to see the detail that modern cameras can capture at-speed on the distant beauties.
 
While Rob is a Nikon user, Micro 4/3 is now at the point where you can carry an equivalent 600mm field of view lens without the need for a heavy tripod, and get very acceptable shots at airshows. And, the 100-300mm f4-5.6 is fast enough for these normally-bright outdoor events! LTZ470 proves the competency of the lens for the application!
