A historic beauty, inside and out

What makes this photo a great shot is the angle at which it shows the aircraft, that angle brings out the beautiful lines of this classic jetliner as it sweeps from the sleek nose to the tail. The photographer was coy in catching the lady in front of the aircraft as that further adds personality to the picture as she looks at the aircraft in awe.
