The "Queen of the Skies" in United's Star Alliance scheme was operating 'United 862' to San Francisco on this fine day with a total flight time of 12 hours 9 minutes. Delayed by 90 minutes, the 747 lifted off from 07R when the light was just perfect. The two islands in the background are (from left to right) Sha Chau and Sheung Sha Chau.
Hong Kong, China

Cool shot with this background. However this plane looks sort of odd with the blue engine cowlings paired with the otherwise black-and-white Star Alliance color scheme.
