Like the juxtaposition of the light from the aircraft against the stars in the sky

Nice - but this is a composite photo. There is no way you can get the Milky Way with such short exposure. It is usually a long timed exposure in which it would have been soft because the plane was flying. Also on the leading edge you can see the red flashing lights from another plane reflecting on it meaning this was taken on the ground. Nice effect though.

Dear US visitor I totally disagree with your comment! Its taken with high ISO settings as visible looking at the wing. The red light is not from another aircraft but the rotating beacon on top of this aircraft, when flying at night you will notice this affect.
Difficult shot with great result!
