I scooted over to MSP during lunch and tried to get a few close shots.

I'm not an aviation photographer and I'm sure it shows. But, I am a private pilot and aviation enthusiast :)

Equipment: 5D Mk III, 70-200 f/2.8 IS, 2x Extender II.

Generally, they look pretty good, except that you've blown out the top sunlit part. Shooting RAW helps with holding that area along with the shadow detail. The Power of RAW in The Hands of The Unskilled ;)

Thank you for the feedback. I did shoot RAW so I've pulled back the whites - any better?

It's a massive crop, but here you go:

Yes, these were handheld.

Not a bad effort but even round two are very overexposed.

Metering Tip: If you have the sun anywhere between high noon to behind you:
Manual Mode @ ISO 100
Choose your shutter speed (1000-1500 for jets)
Point your lens at clear blue sky where the jet will be
Adjust your aperture so that your meter shows 1/2 stop over center
Shoot a couple with these settings. Chimp them and If your histogram looks as if you might be crushing the shadows a little, you can open up another 1/3 of a stop.

Cloudy days work the same way except you have to either slow your shutter by a stop, open your aperture by a stop or bump your ISO by a stop right off the bat. Works the same for backlit subjects too.

As the afternoon progresses, simply adjust as the light changes but it shouldn't be an issue until you hit like 5:00pm and later.

If a prop-driven plane shows up, simply slow your shutter speed and change your aperture the same number of clicks in the opposite direction to get the reciprocal exposure:
1/1000 @ f/4
1/500 @ f/5.6
1/250 @ f/8
1/125 @ f/11
