Night birdview of Minneapolis. Few minutes before landing at MSP, I will memory that I fly with DC10 from Honolulu to Minneapolis as NW98, say good bye to DC10. It was sold to Omni Air International just two weeks after this photo on Dec 21, 2006. [ Canon 350D ]

What a beautiful good-bye to such a special aircraft. Grace, Power, and much more. Beautiful shot!

Nice. It's hard to get a non-blurry picture at night while flying. Great shot.

The sweeping panoramic view with wing and engine in foreground fills the striking image. The wing and engine tell us where the photographer was seated. Foreground adds interest - much more interesting than just a city shot without the plane included. The light on the jet engine is a bonus - better than a dull shadow on the engine. The contrast of angles - wing vs. horizontal lines of the city draws the viewer's eye from left to right and toward the cityscape. Worth framing!

Nighttime photos are so tricky to keep clear. Alex has done a great job of showing us what a treat it is to fly on a clear night. And for us aerial airport photo nerds, he's included most of MSP in the photo!

Awesome clarity and brightness from a plane travelling at 130+ knots!

I love flying in and out of MSP at night. And I love the DC-10. This shot is one of the best ever. 100 stars without a doubt.
