That's what I thought at first, too! The wing is meant, which is seen in the lower part of the picutre. Very tricky :-)

Woah!!! it took me almost 2 minutes of thinking where is the wing ! the wing reflects the mountains in the background and look like a mountain itself. my clue for noticing that its the wing is because of the wing fence and some holes (only 1 whole on the wing).Take note: the airliners.net watermark is the place where the wing is located

I was searching the wing for ages then I found the "strage" reflections and thought it might be some kind of lake and finally I found the winglet. Very cool (literally) shot.

Great shot! It's not a dedicated route - Qantas puts on a special New Year's Eve Antarctic overflight every year. You bring in the New Year over Antarctica! This was the first year the A380 was used.

I feel silly. I was wondering why that one mountain looked so weird and had less detail than the other mountains while I was looking for the wing reflections. Seeing pictures like this one is what makes me want to become a pilot. This is probably a flight to or from South America. Truly amazing!
