A westbound Cathay Pacific 747-400 contrailing at 9.600 meters over Siberia, 500 meters below us, 3 a.m. local time. This very special light was offered by a low full moon and the very first light of the rising sun.

There are so many similer photos like this one, but I think this one is one of the best. The aircraft moving in a dark sky in Siberia...

To encounter air-to-air over siberia is the most magnificient!!.. Overflying Baikal, endless taiga, mountain ranges..This trunk route passes right aside Krasnoyarsk, livng near that city, I try to utilise every possibility to look up in the sky at that streaming high-speed birds..and seeing them with such perspective is something new and fantastic for me..
