I looked at the pic before I read why it was rejected and I thought badcolor myself.
I certainly think you need to lower the blue and/or green in the color balance.
Aside from that, the plane is pretty backlit and might not be good enough anyway. Try using the dodge tool underneath the bottom of the plane at about a 15 exposure with a 100 or 200 sized blurred-edge tool. Confuse you yet? lol Sorry.
Here's a screenshot for you, showing a partial section of the front fuselage that I used the dodge tool with a 15 exposure and the 100 size tool. You can clearly see the difference with the backlit area.
Go easy with the dodge tool. Try to not overdo it, as you'll get grain in the area and it might look uneven. I like to use long fast, but accurate, sweeps uyp and down the area I'm fixing like a paintbrush on a wall.
You can also see where the dodge tool is, the exposure setting on the top, and the size/type of tool I used there also.
I also lowered the green by 14 and lowered the blue by 6 in the color balance and got a more realistic looking color from doing so, making sure the white was the right white and the blue was, well, you get the idea. Can you see the color difference in my screenshot, too?
Hope you don't mind that I edited your shot. Hope this helps.
