Canon 70 -200mm 2.8 L non IS and extender 2x

I have a non IS 70- 200mm 2.8 lens that I want to use with the 1.4x or 2x extender at an airshow and wanted to know if anyone has used this combination before. My worry is the non IS lens will have issues with tracking moving aircraft. I will be using a tripod for static shots but as the aircraft flies down the runway will I lose out on sharp shots. It will be a bright day and I expect to use ISO 800 to keep my sutter speeds high.

I will be using a Canon 1D Mark III camera which can handle the focus issues with this conbination of lenses.

Thanks

Dwight
