9V-SVJ (cn 32335/415) The engine was running bit hot making the blades glow red :) Nah, the sun just illuminating the inside of the engine giving it a nice look! On a flight from Amsterdam to Singapore (SQ323).

GREAT SHOT

A visitor from Canada posted Thu September 22, 2011:
Awesome shot. At first I couldn't understand how the sun could illuminate the front when the clouds show it is behind the aircraft. Then I realized the sun is shining THROUGH the engine!

A visitor from - posted Sun August 21, 2011:
The light looks like its coming from inside the engine. There isn't any sunlight that shade of orange anywhere else shining on the plane. Plus the sun looks like its setting behind the plane not in front and could not obviouslyshine thru the back to front of the engine. Maybe it was running hot lol.

A visitor from - posted Wed August 17, 2011:
And Boeing said: Let there be light!
And there was light.

A visitor from - posted Thu August 26, 2010:
This is the way I would imagine a jet engine should look. The brighter light behind the blades makes it look like the light is actually originating right there.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun December 24, 2006:
In my opinion, this is the ultimate triple7 window vieuw picture. I like the colour in the engine and the clouds in the background. This picture is so sharp, that you can even see all the rivets!Nice wingflex too.

A visitor from Australia posted Tue December 12, 2006:
Those clouds are very beautiful and Singapore Airlines is awesome

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Fri November 17, 2006:
Great a one in a million shot! I have been flying a lot in front of the engines, but I have never seen the sun through the engine blades. An unfamiliar with aviation person could think the engine is indeed running hot…

A visitor from Germany posted Tue November 14, 2006:
It´s great!!!

A visitor from Brazil posted Fri August 11, 2006:
Geez! At a first glance, it looked to me that fire was biting off the blades! Really great shot (even greater to scare the ones who doesn't like to fly)!

A visitor from Turkey posted Mon August 7, 2006:
Amazing picture. also good job taking a picture in a short time while airplane turning.

A visitor from New Zealand posted Sun July 30, 2006:
Great shot, its normally difficult to see the Stator Vanes, but the sunlight illuminates them in this photo.

A visitor from Canada posted Mon July 24, 2006:
I've never been able to catch that engine glow like that. Good job!

A visitor from United States posted Sun May 7, 2006:
Dang this is as cool as freak

A visitor from United States posted Thu April 27, 2006:
Very unusual shot. You never get to see beyond the intake compressor even when the engine is stopped. Here the stator blades are plainly visible, even casting their shadow on the scrim-like plane of the rotating compressor. I've never seen this before and in fact I didn't know it was possible! A wonderful shot, congratulations.

A visitor from France posted Wed March 8, 2006:
The orange color of the sun shining in the by-pass is very nice.
It looks like the Fan blades have been removed... without reading the post associated we could think the engine is suffering a fire in the core engine.

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 3, 2006:
Simply incredible.

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 3, 2006:
That would have scared the bejeezus out of me. Nice shot!

A visitor from - posted Mon February 27, 2006:
Cool effects of the sun. Great Shot Nick.

A visitor from Canada posted Sun February 19, 2006:
The light of the sun seems to be coming from the direction where the plane is heading (the orange glow) but the wing seems to be hiding a bright light...that looks like the sun! coming from the opposite side! ..is it that the sun reflects on the clouds behind? and it looks coming under the wing, does make sense? great!

A visitor from United States posted Sat February 18, 2006:
The clouds as the background are excellent!

Kudos for using a high shutter speed that froze the inner engine blades.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed January 11, 2006:
Amazing shot, I wish I saw that on aircraft. I never sit near the engine though :(

A visitor from Greece posted Mon January 9, 2006:
Looks like God is coming out from this engine!

A visitor from Thailand posted Sun January 8, 2006:
Nice pic.I wish there were more views.

A visitor from Germany posted Sat January 7, 2006:
Look at the wing. Absolutely amazing how lift bends the wing towards the end of a flight as most of the fuel is burned.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat January 7, 2006:
I like to sit at that spot anytime that I travelled

A visitor from United States posted Fri January 6, 2006:

A visitor from Venezuela posted Sat September 3, 2005:
I think it's a pretty good shot becuase it makes a subsonic turbofan engine look like a turbojet supersonic one. even that it's just the sunglare, but it's fun anyway.
