Brilliant! Against the reflection of the sun, amazing color. Check out the sharpness and structure of both water and aircraft.

FRED stands for Freaking Ridiculous Economic disaster. The C-5 has to undergo 16 hrs of mx after 1 hour of flight, or so I hear. Awesome shot Rob, as usual from you.

Incredible photo, the detail of the fuselage and the smooth waves of the ocean are mesmerizing. I didn’t even notice the shadow until I read the comments. Maybe the photographer should have asked the captains to change course or deleted the picture. Come on, enjoy a rare sight.

Nice picture. The sea looks so calm, and the color of the plane fits perfectly to the shot. The reflections of the sun are good too. And the angle gives a different feeling to the shot. Good job!
