Air show tips / settings (looking for input)

Hi all, going to a local air show this weekend

Camera is G5.  Will take a variety of lenses but expect most air shots will be using Panny 100-300

My 'reminder list' so far:

Electronic shutter:  OFF (been there, done that)

Blurred probs:  1/250 or slower

Freeze jets:  1/1000 or faster

ND Filter (if bright) to avoid F11/F16/F22 diffraction

AF-S (I think)

Metering - nine point? (not tiny, not entire sensor)

Burst mode - may need to slow down with Panny 100-300

Positive Exp Comp with dark plane, bright sky (more sky/more comp,  more plane/less comp)

ISO - not sure here

Stabilization - mode 2, panning?

Any other suggestions or comments appreciated.
