AVL, thanks for your thoughts.

The first thing my eyes saw was the cropped "nwa" logo - I would have included the logo in its entirety - the mods are probably going to get you for motive with this one.
Wouldn't fit, my lens couldn't poke through the chainlink so I was limited as to what focal length I could use. I got the WA
and part of the N. I figured I would try to keep the whole word of "Airlines" and the compass logo.

This hasn't stopped others before, though... There's plenty of cropped logos in the category not even including Northwest. I agree they could but it's not something I'm worried about.
On top of that, the tip of the nose has lighting issues. To the left of the cockpit windows the light is great, to the right it's not good.
Time of day. It's early evening hours and the sun has moved just enough so that part of the nose was tilted just so as to be not in direct light. That was the part I was worried about but I don't think it's not fixable... Since I tend to go a little overboard on the contrast sometimes, I cut it back a bit in a new edit. The evening light tends to be contrasty as is, it doesn't need my help.
paintscheme isn't helping either, as I'm sure if it was white it would help. I also don't think it's a big dealbreaker... it reminds me of these.

Would also say that it needs just a hair of CCW rotation.
I would agree. I made an edit by adding .2 CCW and using a lighter contrast curve in my RAW converter (lightroom).
