OceanCity Airshow, R5 + RF 800f11 questions, tips?

I plan to be at the Ocean City Air show tomorrow for the first time and im looking for some tips and answers to a question or two i had.

Is 800mm too much for this air show? I will be on the beach, ground level. How far are the planes normally from on lookers? Will things be too close for an 800mm lens?

Is the electronic shutter going to cause issues here? My time with medium to large birds have proven rolling shutter isnt a huge issues so far. What are your experiences with big metal birds, jets?

A little worried about my non weather sealed lens on the beach. Is this 800 f11 suicide?

My wife and 23 month old child will be attending with me, should i get him ear muffs? Or is the sound not an issue being on the beach?

Any other tips and tricks to share? Has anyone attended this event in the past? Stories?

Thanks in advance!
