Air France 777's never land in Russia. The only chance to see them is cruising altitude. AF117 PVG-CDG cruising at 10600m. Lack of contrail makes the process of catching an airplane into the viewfinder a bit tricky but also gives an effect that the plane is cut from a piece of white paper. Well, not perfectly white... Taken from ground with 1200mm/f5.9 telescope.

It is very impressive that you could resolve this level of detail while being over 6 miles away.

Great job. Anyway, I remeber that maybe two years ago, there was an trouble with one engine of an Air FranceĀ“s engine on an B772 flying from Seoul and it had to land in Irkutsk. There were very rare photos of an B777 staying in snowy Irkutsk with whole body covered with snow and waiting for new engine.
