Hmm, I like it. Its not that far away, considering it was only taken at 170mm (I take it that you cropped the photo loads??) its pretty close!
I like it, give it a try. For things like this there is not really much point in asking, just try it! Doesn't effect you at all if it gets rejected
btw. Different route??? It flies over my house most days, I assume it most fly further north than you then
