Binos for plane watching?

#1
I really like my new Pentax 8 x 40 PCF WP II binoculars!
Here's some reviews:

Mine are Refurbished, from Ebay. (The vendor had them marked down to $49.98).

I wanted 8X, because I can't hold higher magnification binos very steady.
These aren't light weight (being water proof and ruggedly made).

I wanted these, because my old 7x Nikon binos have a short eye-relief, making them useless when wearing eyeglasses.
These are great with glasses and work well for my astronomy needs. (finding alinement stars).

I've been plane watching a little and these are pretty good. Bird watchers gave them a good rating too.

Cheers,
Rich
