To "A visitor from United States Jan 16, 2010": Two reasons not to worry: 1) That's not a nuclear plant 2) even if it had been a nuclear plant, they are still safe enough to take any plane you throw at them. The containment building is a *bunker*, and sufficiently small enough to not take more than one one direct hit from the aircraft's engines, which are the only really solid parts of it.

Oh... wonderful picture by the way. 5 stars on account of the great perspective outside the plane, set against an interresting and detailed backdrop.

To all: thanks for your votes.
Powerplant on the picture is for cole (not nuclear) - it is called "Pocerady", North-West from Prag. There is no any restricted area above that plant. And YES - Sometimes we use chimneys as a cheating tool :)
Landscape aroud that part of our country is realy so beautiful - so I recomand you to come to us and try our local termics. www.lkra.cz
By the way - I was a Pilot and my mate Tomas was a photographer.
