Hey Bud, that's pretty good.
If I may make a suggestion as a long time flight filmer: Don't try to follow the plane because it doesn't show what's actually happening. Rather plant the pilot's feet at the bottom center of the viewer and just hold it there. The plane will fly out of the picture on both sides, but it still tells the story better. If you are really so close that you're losing important parts of the flight, then sweep left and right to capture the edges, but still always keep the pilot's feet at the bottom. If he starts doing overhead maneuvers, maybe raise up and use his waist instead of his feet.

Hope that helps.

Don't Panic!
