On the way to Krasnoyarsk, we encountered a Swiss A340 mid-air and I could not resist to take a photo from the cockpit.

What an epic picture!
Really, the fact of including part of the flight deck window structures really makes the picture!
5* and PC, very well done Felix!

Somehow I think the pilots of that A-340 wished they had a camera with them when they saw your mighty MD-11 closing in from below them. What a photo, I wish I was in your place to take that shot.
