I use the 100-400L and am very happy for air shows. With the 60D you will not have auto focus on any lens/TC combo that results in f8 or smaller aperture (with a Canon TC, unless the contacts are taped). I don't even get auto focus with a 1.4x TC on my 5D mk II when using the 100-400L at the long end.
