What settings for shooting aircraft with KP?

Hi folks,

Just got delivery of Pentax DA 55-300mm ED PLM WR RE lens and want to test it out. As I'm a private hire driver who does lots of airport runs I figured shooting some of the aircraft landing would be a good test. Some of the car parks near the airports allows you real close access as the planes fly in.

What AF settings would you recommend on the KP? CAF should be fine for panning horizontally, yes? IBIS on and perhaps 1/250s min. For night time I guess exposure comp may not be needed or perhaps some negative comp? Daylight the reverse? I'll probably use autoISO.. Thanks in advance.
