We just made a quick stop at the Polderbaan while returning home after Easter holidays. The whole day brought a lot of rain, snow, snow pellets, some wind and mainly no sun. But just in this moment the sun came out, illuminating this KLM MD-11 kicking up the water from the runway and providing a great contrast between the aircraft and a passing heavy snow shower in the background.

I voted on it for best shot, 5 stars as well. Could easily go down as one of those classic shots, that will be brought up in threads and albums. Brilliant image for sure!

Wow! Goes to prove the sun is always shining when an MD-11 is around. Reminds me of the song chorus, "I can see clearly now though the rain has come... its gonna be a bright sun shiny day...."

Now there's someone who know how long to hang on to a made model until offical retirement after over twenty years of service.

Love the water spray. The current KLM livery looks good on the MD-11 and this shows especially well because of the high contrast between the plane and the dark clouds in the background.
