Instead of relying on the camera's inbuilt meter, with readings bouncing all over the place as I track aircraft around the sky, I now set the camera to manual after taking incident light meter readings.

I don't have a light meter outside the camera's meter. I just use that to get a rough idea, then adjust by eye and the histogram.

You can have a giant, dark cumulonimbus just one frame ahead of a bright blue sky, and the exposure will of course need to be different;
Those are very different scenarios with respect to metering. One requires a change, but the other does not, and which metering mode you are in is more important than which exposure mode you are in.
