A good airshow is all about creating
crowd-pleasing illusions:

If you can make the crowd gasp, while
doing something pretty boring, you know
you are doing it right!

Generally you try to make illusions look best
for show center, where the highest concentrations
of people are.

If you are thousands of feet either side of that,
along the crowd line, it will not look as impressive.
