I'm on a laptop at the moment, but this still doesn't look overexposed to me.

I'm not really sure, I'm no expert... Maybe lower the brightness?

I think even if in the most of cases we could do nothing about the overexposed photos, this one seems salvageable on this point. But I feel this photo looks blurry (please look at the cabin windows on the left side of this image) which is hardly fixed.

The entire upper third of the fuselage is overexposed. Unless there is something special about this photo, I wouldn't waste any time on it.

If you have photoshop CS2, use the Shadow/Highlight filter. Pull the highlights up, you can probably get some of the data back.

If you open your info box, you can tell if the highlights are lost by rolling the cursor over the area, if it shows 255/255/255 for the Red, Green and Blue channels, the data is gone.
