Looks a bit like an airbrush painting. The Martinair MD-11´s with their PW engines are real smokers. Nice!

We also see a lot of KLM MD11´s here at AMS and they never smoke, being GE equipped.

If that model is still in production it would be fuel efficient

Always a bit annoying that when an airplane smokes they immediately think that the plane heavily polluting while this isn't the case. Martinair always washes their engines with a special PW programme. Several test already concluded that Martinair is one of the cleanest of Europe. This test came out just a few months ago

Martinair no more. Sad. There is definitely weather although you can't see it on this picture. We normally turn at 400 feet after takeoff if need to.

This photo reminds me of my childhood in Long Beach. This was a common sight, first with the DC-10 then with the most beautiful of the tri-jets, the MD-11.

Who cares on pollution made by this MD-11, pollution caused by air traffic is for sure not the problem in the world. ;) Very nice shot, I love Martinair and MD-11 :)
