Quoting Scotland1979 (Reply 3): Backlit is pretty obviously. Try to keep sun behind you which will make plane look much better
It's not backlit, it's frontlit, a backlit shot would have left the entire tail in shadow.
I've heard the "try to keep the sun behind" comment a lot and that is fine, but at MMX where I usually spot the runway is 17/35, so how am I supposed to keep the sun behind around 12 AM? Morning or afternoons it's easy... And I think this shot has the same problem, it's landing in the direction of the sun. And avoiding shooting at that time is not an option if there's a really nice bird coming, like once we had a AN-124 at 12AM.

Well, it's just that some shots were never meant to be. I have a sad list of good shots I missed because sun was in the wrong place.
BTW, keeping sun behind you at 12:00 AM is really hard (unless you are above polar circle) - 12:00AM is midnight

Huh? Haven't heard of 12:00 with am or pm. You can only say midnight or noon. You can use am from 12:01am to 11:59am as well as pm from 12:01pm to 11:59pm. Can't use am or pm for 12:00. It is logic for time. Or use 24:00 hour to avoid am or pm if you like
