Kyle, your email wasn't accepting my response so here it is.
A lot of the traffic that goes out of LAX
to Europe comes over DEN
. We had a Swiss Air MD11 a while back at DEN
due to a diversion. There is a Virgin 747 that goes over around the same time as that Qantas bird.
I used a 75-300mm IS
on the 300D. The thing that made the difference was I was on top of the pinery which reduces significantly the amount of atmosphere between me and the 764 compared to if you stand in a lower area like downtown Denver. I think you can kind of compare it to the continentality effect but on a much smaller scale!
