No, actually it's not. While there is a little grain in the darker areas, I'd hardly say it was extreme.
It is somewhat overexposed and a has had a little too much sharpening applied (see around edges of tail/wings, reg., front gear doors, etc...). Not too bad but it is noticeable. I'd also suggest a 2x3 crop rather than 3x4, and then re-size to 1024 to hide any more imperfections.

Quoting Koryo (Reply 3): the photo is extremely noisy try using Neat Image
What is it with you and NeatImage, if you had used it before you wouldn't give such random advice. Neat Image is only to be used with care, because otherwise your photo will look overprocessed, therefore easy on NeatImage, it's a great tool if you know how to handle it.

I've just clicked on the above pic and I cant view the larger version either. I think its a site problem as Ive tried to look at pictures in other people profiles and I get the same thing, a new pop up with the only thing showing "Close Window"

The image opens for me okay.
Unforunately I think you would have a rejection there - the sky remains pretty grainy and the overall aircraft is not as sharp as A.net like it to be. I am afraid the quality is not 100% here, so I would give this one a miss, due to its subject matter.
