When I shoot animals and aircraft, I generally stay in shutter priority mode and let the camera figure out ISO and aperture. I generally stick with shutter speeds at around 1/125 for prop aircraft, and 1/1000 for jet aircraft.

Although (if I am correct) those lenses have a panning mode (Mode 2 on the 70-300; auto-panning detection on the 55.250) I would try to leave IS off. If they haven't a panning mode, then it is a must to shoot without IS.
