If you go for a non-Sony lens, whether Tamron or Sigma, make sure you get one with the High Speed Motor as anything else will strip the internal motor due to the Sony focusing speed.

The G stands for Gold and refers to Sony top of the range lens.

A lot of aviation photography web sites usually have a page on aeroplane/air show how to photography and as your'e using a Sony and the 70-300mm G SSM has been mentioned, you might find this page from JCoombesAviation, who posts on this forum a MerlinJon, most helpful.
