Getting used to my new (to me) Sigma 400mm lens during the trade displays at Farnborough. I'm lucky enough to work next to the runway so get some good views. Just about got to grips with the lens now but any tips for shooting aircraft (as a quick look at my profile would show they aren't my usual subject) would be welcomed.

The biggest issue I've been having is with the aircraft against blanket white/grey cloud.

The shot has been cropped ever so slightly and a little sharpening done after resizing to 600px
