Thank you for sharing this, as an old trucker I know all about greeting a colleague. Just had no idea pilots flashed their headlights too. PC and 5 stars from me - Johnny Kristensen

Wow! Photo of the year. Rarely do I open A.net and see something that gets an audible " Whoa" out of me. Outstanding!

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.

One of the most unique pictures on A.net. The contrails look like the beard of the gods overflowing from heaven.

Five star picture for sure, beautiful. Anyone know why the inner engine contrails are much shorter than the outer engines?

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.

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!
