Under normal daylight conditions, I'd go for an ISO of 400 to have enough reserve for a short shutter speed (to freeze the plane plus avoid shake). Put the D40 to automatic exposure as that also tends to favor the shorter speeds and don't bother about white balance.

I'd second everything Thomas has said, but if it's overcast and your planes are coming out too dark on the photos, you might want to adjust the exposure compensation to, say, +1EV. This will double the exposure automatically, thereby making the picture twice as bright as normal.

Make sure you switch it back to 0 afterwards though, or ALL your photos from now on will be too bright!
