Thanks for all the comments.

Should've used a fill light under the wing, and there's a dust spot next to one of the cones.
Would a fill-flash really have lit much up over a 30-second exposure? And good eye on the dustspot, will definitely clear that up. I might try re-editing it to correct the darkness and bring out more detail, but that won't change the motiv. Damn.
Here's another fresh rejection from that night. I part expected it to get bounced for motive as well (which it did) because of the nose-area, but I also wanted to believe that this was an extenuating circumstance all the way around -- new registration and relatively new airline for the database, plus something not normally seen around here...
- Thanks, Chris, I'm glad you enjoyed my article. Keep an eye out for two more pieces later this year.
