Yep definately screaming sawtooth jaggies in the livery, what sort of sharpening did you do with it?

Probably just a bit...But I'd go with a try anyway...
Best luck.

I use PSP pro, I normally sharpen then a couple of un-mask sharp passes.I have this on a low setting and just bump it up bit by bit.

Have you tried not using the full sharpen and just using a few more passes of Un-sharp Mask instead? I'm not claiming to be an expert, but I know from reading here in the past that most people here usually just go with USM. I think the photo has potential, but that livery is a tricky one to get just the right amount of sharpness into.

I can't comment on the soft/sharpness but I would recommend centering it better, make sure there is equal distance from the tip of the tail fin to the frame edge is the same as the distance from the nose to the frame edge

It definately needs centering correctly. There is very little space between the tip of the tailplane and the left border but plenty of dead space to the right of the nose.
