I find a lot of the guys who are trying for these sort of pics in the Autumn still keep their cameras on a semi-auto exposure, using either aperture or shutter priority and trusting to some exposure compensation to get the image dark enough. To me that still results in an overexposure so I always dial in a manual exposure that I've judged by the sky rather than the aircraft. This has to be updated minute by minute as the light drops off. The first sunset images in this sequence were shot at 1/8000th of a second, this one was down to 1/1000th.
