Technically you should be able to get this close with that lens as though I have 400mm, I rarely use it at that extention. This image for example was only shot at 297 mm, so technically within your lenses capability. This image was cropped tighter than the original image though but the ability to do that is completely governed by how sharp an image you can achieve. The sharper the more you can crop without loosing too much detail. Also a little bravery is needed to use full extention. Though after a while judging what extention you need comes natural.

I seem to go to the full 300mm quite often but never seem to capture anything as close as that. Maybe Im stood to far away to start with.

Possibly true and it would also depend on the show you visit and where you position yourself at the show. For examaple Seaside airshows tend to have the display line set further back than most airfield/airbase shows which is one of the reasons I don't attend them, aside from the larger crowds and the inability to see some of the more rare aircraft on the UK circuit. Also the smaller the venue, the closer you tend to see aircraft so for example you will see aircraft closer at a place like Old Warden than you will at RAF Fairford or RAF Waddington etc.

True. So far I've only been able to attend my local seaside airshow. Will hopefully attend some others this year or next.

Well there you have it, I am pretty sure if you visited a show on an airfield/airbase that you will get much closer images. What part of the country do you live in? and what aircraft types do you prefer? Modern, Classic Jets? Vintage etc?

Just wondering because I might be able to give you an insight into the best shows to visit?
