Takeoff shot from the viewing deck at Zurich. I arrived in Zurich that morning from Singapore and landed in heavy fog. I feared that my plans of a day's photography in (any) good light were in danger. But at around 0930, the sun broke through and mixed in with the condensation to give me a photograph that I will treasure for years to come!

We miss the MD-11... We miss Swissair!

The picture is beautiful, however from the angle that we see it looks like the tail is either dragging on the ground, which of course, is not possible, or it has crashed tail first, which I assume did not happen. Can you explain this?
