Default Airshow Photography

Well, I'm back for some more advice. I'll be taking my 10D to an airshow this weekend, and even though it's the same WWII planes I see every year, I must take new pictures!

I've had some good results with my old film SLR (all manual), but I just wanted to pick up a few tips. I'm hip to trying to expose for the planes and not the sky. What's the best way to do this? I have one of those 18% cards, would that help?

What about the autofocus system? Should I use the canned sports setting or go manual?

I have a 28-200mm 1:3.5 - 5.6 zoom lens. When should I be concerned about maximum zoom issues? I've heard that lenses are optimized at f8. I've seen this in product shots.

Thanks for any tips.
