En-route LHR-LAX. We had been airbourne 3 hours 10 mins with cloud cover beneath us. Then we had a 40 minute break in the clouds and what a sight! Perfect trip, 1st 744 flight, 1st visit to LAX and the amazing ice fields too! Dedicated to my 'Fox'

Glorious... I pity the travelers that pull the window-shade down, go to sleep, and miss views like this.

I've seen this same view as well, GLA-EWR via Continental 757-200. I seem to like this pic better though, because there were no ice flows when i traveled over Greenland. Very nice. 5 stars.

Outstanding... a genuine top drawer landscape image... raw nature below, being defied by RR engines above

I would also say that after 3 hours flight time it is most probably Greenland underneath and not Canada.

Excellent composition and clarity. The contrast of the RR engines & the frozen landscape below is very effective.

The main reason this is such an appealing image is that we get stunning, razor sharp scenery of fascinating terrain from high above but without a big, fat wing cutting across the picture (and no watermark, either, of course).

This is what drives this image to 5 big stars and beyond. Thank you so much.

This creates an optical illusion to me. The ice is so detailed that it makes me feel that it is so much closer to the airplane that it really is. Very beautiful photo.

I swear the RB211s are shrinking in old age. They used to look so much bigger!!!
