Amazing shot.
Who and where??
Ian Moult
That is so good,it's almost to good to be true.
The timing is outstanding.

I don't quite understand. If the shutter speed was fast enough to stop the nearest aircraft, giving a sharp image, why is the other out of focus? The only explanation I can think of is that with an extreme telephoto, the depth of field is so shallow that even the passing aircraft is out of focus. Otherwise, it's a fake.
David Sims
The camera was liking panning with the aircraft that is in focus, which caused the other one to blur slightly. I've managed similar shots of the Blues and T-Birds.
Geoffrey Lock
The other plane isn't out of focus
The camera is panning with the first one, i.e following it
So the one behind is moving the other way relative to the camera and the blur is movement, not focus.
If the camera was stationary, bith would be blurred, but 1/2 as much
Great Shot!!!
Sorry - Forgot
These are Saudi AF BAE Hawk Mk.65As from their display team, the Saudi Hawks
Don't know where thou
Miguel Paredes
What an awesome shot! The paint job on those Saudi Hawks, together with the red coloured smoke, make it even better. Kudos to you, eLaRef, simply brilliant!

Absolutely incredible shot, I'm inclined to say once in a lifetime because of all the things that had to go right - at the right moment. Congratulations.

Wow. I would like to see all these photos posted on Flight Aware have some sort of description, like acft type, where, when, etc. People asking this on every photo posted. What a hell of a capture.
Isaac Vogelzang
That is amazing!

If you operate at F2.8 at say 1/500th sec the depth of field is extremely shallow.I have taken a couple of Swiss F5s doing a mirror image and the second is out of focus.To get the above pic you are either very good or very lucky. But as has been said on numerous times " the more you practise the luckier you get"
10/10 as far as I am concerned.
Dale Kline
Sure looks like a "pushme-pullyou" to me! (if you have seen Dr. Doolittle?) Incredible photo though! Wild psychedelic paint job too!
Neil Klapthor

An amazing piece of art!! Thanks for posting.

It could have been taken at the air show in Dubai.

It's an awesome shot of a rarely seen demo team.
