Great shot! Looks like it was taken recently and gives you the 70's feel too.

You've gotta be kidding me Brian, this is unreal mate!! Look at the detail, it's spectacular. I'd ditch all 1400+ images I've got here to have shot this!

The image is well framed, well timed, and the hulls on display are beautiful. Call me a sucker for an unpainted fuselage.
