Beautiful! There's something eerily still about the shot. It almost looks like a model plane sitting up there. Nice job.

A perfect angle, all details can been seen, the clear air and the dark blue sky in FL390 makes it perfect. Would be nice to get some details. Camera & lens.

747 still majestic. A great shot. Because of the contrast you see everything clear and sharp.

I also would like to sit at the Beach of the Bermudas and watching aircrafts, while I feel the breeze of the sea and check a cold beer. That´s Paradise!

It shows a great balance with sunlight and a clean deepblue sky, It helps the white color of the plane and the inclination of it.

Well, Josef, great shot. Tells us again, it's not good enough to just be there, it sure helps if you're able to take a pic like yours here in the scarce amount of time you have! Congrats!

To the User from France who commented on the cleanliness of the a/c: Dirty might not quite be the operative word, but F-GISA sure looks like she wetted her pants recently......
