Any particularly good places to stand? Also is there going to be a problem turning up at the entrance with a large backpack and chair?
Thanks for any help
I went in on a trade day 2 years ago with my rather large lowepro camera bag dressed in 3/4 length camo shorts, t-shirt & flip flops and no-one questioned me. aslong as you've paid for your ticket i really don't think anyone cares.
As for 400mm depends what shots you want, if it's take off/landings then you'll be fine with anything from 18-200mm plus you have the added bonus you'll have room to swing a cat. 400mm for anything flying will probably be about right.
Hope this helps.
