Center it, crop a little, play with the levels ever so slightly (being careful not to overexpose, it is borderline already near the nose), and use a duplicate layer to sharpen. Select all the sky, invert and sharpen the aircraft, then use the eraser to blend the jaggies. Looks good.

You do have some nice lighting there.
I agree with the comments above - you will definitely need a closer crop. I was going to have a go editing what you posted, but I see that the size of the image is rather small (800 x 600). I may be missing something here, and it may be due to the site that hosts your photo, but you will need a larger file for any upload here.
I would be happy to have a go at an edit if you would like, so you can compare with what I come up with - just let me know via my profile.

Thanks guys for all your comments.
I purposely uploaded at 800x600 to reduce bandwidth and save time.The original is a lot bigger and I have been working on it most of the afternoon,trying different techniques and tips from your comments.
