I may see you at RIAT, I'm there both days to see some old friends.
I seem to have the best luck with my D800e set to spot metering rather than trying to sod about with manual on the actual flying displays.
Those fast jets are to damn quick for me in my old age!
I'm taking my 300 F2.8 VRII with 1.7 and 2.0 TCs plus my 70-200F2.8 VRII and 14-24 F2.8 for the ground displays.
Found to my dismay last year that the 24-70 F2.8 was lacking a bit in the wide angle due to the sheer amount of people there. I could get in close to the aircraft but couldn't get many good photo's of the whole aircraft due to people.
Take plenty of water and a hat, it's gonna be a hot one!
