I am heading for YVR in the next couple of weeks, staying @ The Fairmont, and I plan to take some more shots from the 14th floor. Anyone know which would be a better rental, the D-100 or the D60? Both are $100 for the weekend, without a lens...

Depends on what lenses are available. If the right lens is available in Nikon mount, go with the D100, if the Canon lenses are better, go with the D60.
Dows the $100 include enough storage media for the trip?

They offer a 1GB Microdrive as part of the rental package. Their lens selection is huge, I count 100+ diffrent options. I was thinking something like a 80-400mm f4.5-5.6 ED VR Nikor...but am solicting opinions!

the 80-400VR is an excellent lens, and now the lens of choice of many wildlife photographers (aircraft aren't much different from birds, just larger). If you can afford to, you might add a 35-70 f/2.8 AF-S and/or a 600mm f/4.0 AF-S (with maybe a 1.4x TC) depending on what you want to do.
