Absolutely stunning!

This is a unique photo visualizing aspects of 747's aerodynamics I was previously unaware of! Just look at how the contrail from the outer engines intertwines with those of the inner engine on each side. Amazing colors and sharpness! Five stars minus one for watermark position. Truly inspiring!

Inner engine contrails aren't shorter... wing downwash is mixing them up ;)

A visitor from Canada posted Fri June 29, 2012:
Only one word AWESOME. Great shot, My 5* too. QG.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 29, 2012:
Perfect photo. The contrails look like solid rock in the desert and the little flash of the headlights just tops it off wonderfully. The best I've seen on A.net.
