RE: Acceptable For A Panning Shot?

With some judicious noise reduction you should have no problem fixing up the grain in the background. The aircraft itself has a slight blurry look to it, though, so I would probably downsize to 1024. Also, some CCW rotation is needed.

Should be a go-er after that!

It could use even a bit more CCW rotation; about 0.4 degrees I'd guess, just eyeballing it. Your main reference should be the two pillars on either side of that yellow biplane.
