Once again folks, you've not actually read Martin's post properly... he's not buying this lens, he's already got it and was considering selling it before. Now that he's found out it will work with EOS (with a suitable adaptor) the question is not "Should I buy it?" but "now that I'm keeping it will the results be any good?"
Martin, I'm no expert here mate and I've never used that lens but from what was discussed before I don't think it has image stabilisation so trying to shoot a moving aircraft with a 1000mm lens hendheld is going to be a nightmare!
I think the real use for such a lens is on a tripod shooting distant (or very small) birds.
Still, you've got the lens, the adaptor isn't that expensive, so you've got nothing to lose. Try it out see what results you get and make an informed decision! Good Luck!

Oh I get it Chief. From what I see on this board, its safe to say that 90% of Nikon users in the world are jerks. Nikon users think their cameras are God's gift to the world of photography. I know Nikon is a good camera. Then again I am a Minolta turned Canon user who thinks outside the box. The Non-Nikon users are level headed. We think clearly and logically.
Also, you are so full of one liners, its not hard to tell you are a retired chief. "Do this now". Etc, Etc, Etc.
