I'm not sure if that destroys the 'effect' you're going for with your photo, but with the way you are currently doing it, it seems as though you've gone for a whole shot yet chopped off the pod on the right 'just for the hell of it'. I'd suggest going more side on to help reduce a motiv & centre rejection. The photo isn't that appealing at the moment. Including the pod, and maybe the rest of the wing on the right - would help.
Additionally, it doesn't seem level at the moment.

I really like your initial shot, with its wide angle motive, though it is easy to see why it falls foul of the A.net rules, as the subject all too easily looks very focused on the right. I am surprised you didn't get a level rejection for it as well though, as the second image looks straighter (having been rotated CCW).
I agree with Peter that you may have to sacrifice your initial motive and go for a wider crop - assuming you have it in the original. If so it will be improved further by including the whole of that tank, as he says, so you will then have the canopy closer to the middle of the crop.
Yep agree here. Anet seem to lean more towards side on shots more than others. Its a safer bet too, that the shot will stand a better chance in screening if your shot was a little more side on, or the aircraft was centered.
The motive/crop is not what anet goes for so sorry to say that even the re-edit may struggle.

Like this. centER, not centRE, haha.
I agree with the above. The way it is now, you might want to try including the entire drop tank. For future references, it might be better to either take the shot fully head-on (check pics of the F-16 on the USS Intrepid) or more from the side.
