1. get closer to the aircraft. Shooting airliners with 500-600mm will very often result in blurry/heathazed photos (unless it's a cold, clear day, but I don't think that ever happens at TIST). Try to find a spot at the airport where you will need only 150-300mm.
2. take into account the position of the sun. Avoid facing the sun (backlight) and try to photograph during the early morning or late afternoon/evening, especially at a place relatively close to the equator like TIST.
If you look around at this website, you will see that these basic guidelines were applied by a lot of the photographers, regardless of their equipment.
