Turn you AF off right from the start and focus manually. That may be one your issues. And using a consumer grade HD camcorder, which all consumer grade camcorders are known to do is interpolate the video, which in short means, the lens mechanism takes one frame, then the camcorder electronics write the next 4 or 5 frames, using a predetermined logarithm based on frames on either side. It repeats this throughout the whole video making process. This make motion video, which you airplane is in motion, almost unwatchable.

I would use a MiniDV Tape Camcorder, only because MiniDV Tape camcorders record every frame from the lens assembly, no internal electronics making frames. Couple that with the fact you would need to spend something like $3400 to purchase a HD Camcorder that would have better video quality.
