I like the composition. What shutter speed? You have some nice blur on the propellers, which I think is important. (I would probably try 1/250th to start with for a plane, 1/125th for helicopter, then go faster if I think from the review on the back I can get away with it, or perhaps slower for a Chinook).

I think TAv mode is very good for aircraft, and some motor sports as well. It deserves more attention.
