Given you've already got the 70-200,the 50 and the 28-135 I'd say leave the 70-300 at home it'll tighten up some shots a bit but probably not enough to justify the bag space when the 70-200 is probably well more than enough seeing as a 7D is a 1.6x crop factor that means your 70-200 is producing the same effective shots as a 112-320. Always remember one major rule of shooting if you've got a once in a lifetime shot of moving action and that is shoot wide first crop later (so I'd advise you to shoot RAW). the 50mm would be great for perhaps up close shots of the little details on the planes after the routine is over and they are parked and the 28-135 could be useful for getting in tight but not too tight on a say a diamond slot shot.

Unless it's an EF-S lens. Then it's an actual 70-200.
