I like the toning (works well with a black background), the contrast between the background sky and that of the trainers and just the perspective that creates the sense of viewing living creatures (as you say a dolphin pod).

Just how close are these trainers... just seem like they are only a couple of feet apart.

Its pretty difficult to judge distances in the air, especially when using a 600mm lens as well, but these guys were flying pretty close and probably the tightest formation seen

Looks like it was a great air show. Great pictures!

Love the colors that go with the "in tandem" fighters. Surreal at the same time and slightly disquieting for the portent.
