Yup its not the plane being almost black, but more the ground being there.
The whole idea of taking these pics is showing a silhouette of a plane with loads of nice colors in the background. So having them up in the skies is a better way to go.

The difference between Your pics and the ones You included above ist, that the ones above showl all black planes, but You can see the total plane, even look through the cockpit, there is still the plane clearly visible.
In Your pics, You have great sunset colors, but the plane is merging with the ground to some black area.
If the contour of the plane would be completely visible, it would be a great shot.
