Another great view of Greenland together with a great view of the two Rolls Royce RB211 engines taking us from London to Los Angeles on flight BA269.

Absolutely cracking photo, Peter! You've caught not only a magnificent landscape down below but also a certain clarity making me feel as if I was there witnessing this sight live. It's also interesting as it appears we can see some motion from the 'cones' inside the engines - outstanding!

Oh, I miss this airline... but a very fulfilling shot!

I was treated with a view of Greenland two years ago on my way to SFO from LHR. What an amazing and remote part of the world. Second to Antarctica. I see you didn't have as many clouds this time. Excellent photo.

Hello Peter, Great Shot! I was wandering if you remember what seat this shot was taken from? Thanks!

I've seen something else almost like this, except that was a Qantas 747-438ER from Sydney to Johannesburg and it was over Antarctica.
