I think it needs a tighter crop on the left. I would agree with the baddark, and it looks soft on the titles, and i would say that it is generally soft all round. Just my .
edit: dont know if you should trust me cause i need glasses! LOL

Nice shot there. It does need a bit of extra sharpeness but watch for jaggies when doing so.
I think the crop is fine, but what I would do is only sharpen the aircraft, not the sky. I see some grain appearing in the sky from sharpening so keep an eye on that.
As for dark, well, always remember to check the histogram. Very important. That will tell you if you are on the right track. But I think you have a good shot there that could be saved and could also star here in the DB.

I think the pic is fine, if possible move the aircraft slightly to the top.
But then again, i don't get much pics approved, so who am i to judge other pics.
If all else fails, upload it to MyAviation.net ....

If I were in Manu's shoes, I would crop closer to the starboard outer engine, and add a little brightness to the underside using the Curves tool.
I can't judge the softness - I'm on my work monitor.
Regarding centering, the aircraft is perhaps a bit low in the frame.
Incidentally, I had an almost identical shot of the same aircraft rejected ....

Dark as said, needs a touch of light underneath.
Centre needs a lighter crop to the left and is slightly low in the frame.
Soft - right undercarriage and right wing as we look at it, also the nose. I would not touch the titles they look sharp enough.
Should be fixable although the nose is quite soft. I'm sure Manu will work his magic on it.
