AIRLINERS.NET CREW PHOTO SCREENER
1 - Looks to me it was an early morning shot before 'nice lighting' which can leave the sky very grainy. Not a great deal can be done with it I don't think. I generally give up when trying to edit this type of shot, But if someone has a fix.......
2 - The lower of the fusealge does seem dark, Maybe have a little play with the highlights, but be carefull not to get too much grain.
3 - It needs to be little higher in the frame, the center point of the aircraft is too low

#1: it looks like you sharpened the sky as well as the airplane. Try to select and to sharpen the airplen only. Then the sky looks better.
#2: Looks like a noon shot when the sun comes from directly above the airplane. Always gives you a dark lower fuselage. Using the highlights can cause a lot of grain, so use it very carefully... It is a tricky one

exclude the sky when sharpening #1 and maybe apply noise reduction to it as well. Also crop it closer to the nose, you have way too much dead space in the front. I don't really see it as soft and as for "common" - it needs to be of an exceptional quality as it is a very common airplane.
#2 is dark indeed, you can adjust the contrast...
#3 - again, too much dead space in front of the plane and maybe crop tighter as well.
