Gotcha! Almost missed this shot, one of the most beautiful things I've seen in a long time. This is Dynasty flight 16, from Taipei to Houston via a stop in Seattle. The sun is just going down making her contrail a wonderful golden color. We were at FL380, she was at FL390. Hope you like it. Special thanks to Paul Markman for his editing expertise!

Great color, and a good distance shot making the airliner look like a crop duster. The contrail has a good curve to it, it's not often you get to see airliners bank unless they're near an airport on landing or take off.

Hello
Very rare shot. With a nice sunset. However, may I kindly suggest that the "Airliners.net" banner could be little bit nearer to the edge of the screen..?

A dramatic brush stroke of soft gold across the blue sky. What great timing.I like that you used the darker clouds at the bottom of the frame ro provide a sense of horizon. The darkness of them also helps the brightly lit aircraft to become a balancing element. Beautifully done... only in Texas! ;-)

Amazing colours, amazing clarity. What a fantastic picture. So much sky and detail caused by a little blob in the corner of the shot, which is such a huge bird on the ground!

The contrails provide a wonderful view of how relaxing it is. They add so much more detail and add a sense of a relaxing atmosphere.

Best photo i've ever seen on this flight, it would be almost impossible to get a shot like that ever again. The classic 747 adds a nice touch too. Amazing.
