I like these kinds of shots, and there's a little trick here. The only light that is hitting the backlit side of the aircraft is light that has reflected off other objects, for example you have a nice reflection of the wing and engine off the fuselage. Use the dodge tool, make one or two passes over the entire fuselage with the exposure set to around 15% and set to "midtones." Then, use the burn tool with the exposure set to 5% and "Shadows" and run it over the entire fuselage. Then, run the sharpen tool over the entire fuselage. Do this to the original before you use brightness/contrast and saturation layers, and you'll find that this shot will probably turn out very well.
