Re: 300 AF-S VR or 200-400 AF-S VR?

I too was looking for a longer telephoto for airshows...for sure 300 to 400mm plus. I decided to go with a 300 f/4 AF-S, probably will use it with a 1.4 TC. I've seen some very sharp airshow shots with this combo on pbase, etc. The 300mm f/2.8 AF-S would be super too...my only drawback was the higher cost and weight, considering I don't want something too heavy when I'm panning the skies (6 vs 3 lbs). Good luck, though, sounds like either lens would be stellar.
18-55 f/3.5-5.6 AF-S II ED
70-200 f/2.8 AF-S VR ED (light grey)
300 f/4 AF-S ED (light grey)
