D300 + 300 f2.8 or D700 + 300mm + tc14e image quality ?

I have asked a similar question before but didn't really get any diffinitive answers

Has anyone got an opinion on which would give the best image quality for shooting aircraft
So as mentioned the contenders are

D300 + Nikon 300 f2.8 ( effective focal length of 450mm )


D700 + Nikon 300mm f2.8 + tc14e ( focal length of 420mm )

In low light there would be no question the D700 would win but what about a nice sunny day at Iso 200 on a monopod with both lens stopped down a couple of stops !

Any suggestion ?
