Absolutely stunning!

A visitor from - posted Thu July 5, 2012:
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!

A visitor from Brazil posted Wed July 4, 2012:
Very Nice! Five Stars!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed July 4, 2012:
Simply epic colours!

A visitor from Spain posted Wed July 4, 2012:

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 29, 2012:
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.

A visitor from - posted Fri June 29, 2012:
How do you spell "beautiful?" 7-4-7...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 29, 2012:
Five star picture for sure, beautiful. Anyone know why the inner engine contrails are much shorter than the outer engines?

A visitor from - posted Fri June 29, 2012:
Best shot in 2012!! (so far...)

A visitor from - posted Fri June 29, 2012:
Wonderful. Are the outer engines on a high higher thrust setting?

A visitor from Sweden posted Thu June 28, 2012:

A visitor from Australia posted Thu June 28, 2012:
One of the most unique pictures on A.net. The contrails look like the beard of the gods overflowing from heaven.

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 28, 2012:
Simply stunning.

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 28, 2012:
Amazing. I wish that there wasn't a watermark though. Truly a once in a lifetime shot, those contrails are so beautiful against the blue sky and almost seem like solid matter coming off the wings.

A visitor from Qatar posted Thu June 28, 2012:
Wow! Photo of the year. Rarely do I open A.net and see something that gets an audible " Whoa" out of me. Outstanding!

A visitor from Sweden posted Thu June 28, 2012:
