Very awesome effect. This DC-9 looks like it has got strings trailing off the leading edges. Also, it is being chased by bad weather

Looks like lightning!

Amazing colors...the shiny shiny shiny MD80 vs the dark dull gray sky...and the vortices are great also! I can't wait to go to PDX!

Great contrast with the dark background and brightness of the airplane and vortices. Nice angle too! I like the shot John.
