Afternoon flight from Warsaw to Vienna, passing a heavy local rainshower a few minutes after take-off. Eventhough it was in the middle of the afternoon, the sky grew dark, and the sight of those breaking clouds was quite amazing to me.

That is actually not a heavy shower. A heavy one you would not be able to see through. That is not much more than some light showers.

Wow! almost unseen the view of a light rainbow under the showers of a dark cloud, would have been wonderful to had felt the water rain on you. Thanks for the sensation left at watching this awesome picture.

To the UK visitor---it's not virga. Virga is precipitation that doesn't hit the ground, which is obviously not the case here.

I wonder if rain has ever been photographed in such grandeur! The way it shows scale is incredible! Wonder what this would sound like (apart from the aircraft's sound, of course). — Arun J.
