Servus visitor,

Here I will do some equipment recommendations, for separate scenarios which I had used and I'm still using (Amazon-affiliate-links behind the pictures):

  • Canon 7D Mark II
  • Canon 70D
  • Canon 600D
  • GoPro HERO2
  • GoPro HERO4 Black
  • Canon EF-S 10-22mm F/3.5-4.5 USM
  • Canon EF 16-35mm F/2.8L II USM
  • Canon EF 24-70mm F/2.8L II USM
  • Canon EF 70-200mm F/2.8L IS II USM
  • Canon EF 100-400mm F/4.5-5.6L IS USM
  • Canon 1.4x Extender III

The 7D Mark II is equipped with 100-400mm lens for everything up in the air. Depends on the light condition and the distance to the planes/ helicopters if it's with extender or not. The 70D is equipped with the 16-35mm lens for anything on the taxiways. Sometimes I switch the lens to 24-70mm, depends on the distance to the taxiway and size of the plane. The 600D is equipped with the 10-22mm lens for splits.
