Nice capture. The red livery is difficult as I think it tends to produce some grain. The background also has a little grain. How about a tighter crop maybe? I like it, I reckon its worth fixing. And i'm sure others here will have better advice! And the level seems fine to me.......

Firstly, I must say this is a really nice photo - I'm a big admirer of panning shots, not least because they are so difficult to 'nail'.
The key issue for me with the shot is the red colour of the livery - it looks almost oversaturated and thus rather grainy. I think if this could be sorted then it might stand a good chance - any blur may be small enough to not be fatal.
I have got the close up equipment out and would say that the photo does need very slight CCW rotation. But we are only talking one fifth of a degree. That's using the back of the runway as the guide. I wonder if that tiny amount is not key, but it's the look of the horizon at the top of the frame, which gives the eye the impression of needing a bit of CCW rotation.
