"Lady Bird" glides in and out of sunlight blocked by a frustratingly common broken marine layer this time of year. This is the only shot of the series in which the entire length of this machine is sunlit. Pictured here on very short final for 24R as VIR23. She is completing her descent over the desert with a flight originating at LHR. This aircraft looks absolutely stunning in the VS revised scheme! 1400 Pixels Wide!
