I find that the focal length depends on what you want to achieve. I use a combination of anywhere between 16mm to 300 mm. Of course logically I wouldn't use the 16mm from a great distance away, nor would I use a 200mm if I was only 2 feet away. Occasionally, I use a 500mm but only because I can't get any closer to get the desired effect. When you go and attempt to use it, you will find out yourself if your 200mm gets you close enough to the action to get full frame. For air to air purposes, i usually use medium format but 35mm film is good for the novice as it is prone to less camera shake but not so good for enlargements compared to larger format negatives. And certainly, 200mm is the largest focal length I would consider using in an air to air situation due to instability of holding the camera steady. I have gone 200mm air 2 air before but you have to sacrifice FL for shutter speed making a poor result for prop aircraft but ok for jets.
