Chicago Air and Water Show tips

Anyone shot this?  I'm thinking of going for the first time.  I am a bit of a 'chicken' re. getting into the city.

I'm considering going to the practice on Friday, if it will be sunny.

I'm considering trying to get to North Ave beach if I go to the practice, figure it will be too crowded for the actual shows.  Or would Oak St beach be even better?

Mainly trying to decide what gear.  I have D810, D850, 600mm F4, Tamron 150-600mm G2, 300mm F4 w or w/o 1.4 TC, 70-200 f/2.8.

D850 is a no brainer, probably with the 600mm or the Tammy.

As I might be by myself, might take the train - should I take the big lens and tripod, with a shorter lens on the D810?   Or should I just take the D850 and the Tammy and make it easy?

Any thoughts and tips very welcome.
