Unless the pilots have experience with formation flying I would stick with the 100-400. If he's a new formation pilot you'll want him as far away as possible!

Thanks. We were shooting from a Cessna 172 and it was pretty smooth. You should have enough room for two bodies. What is your platform going to be?

I was wondering which lens is gonna be best. I would really like to shoot with my 70-200 2.8

One tip: if you have a lens with "IS" switch it off
|Quoting Fiveholer (Reply 10):|
Maybe I am naive (not maybe, I am, having not done air to air before), but why would I not use IS?
|Quoting Maiznblu_757 (Reply 11):|
Although the 24-105mm has a 3rd Generation IS system, its only got one mode... *edit: Still doesnt make sense as you would want the traditional IS engaged, and thats what the 24-105mm offers. ???????

I am worried about shooting long from a bumpy little Cub. Looks like the 100-400 will be my primary...and I would imagine it would be kinda tight having a 2nd body and/or changing lenses.
