Beautiful shot, but a note to Mr. Branson. " Queen of the Skies" is already taken! She was born in Seattle.

The dark red and purple look amazing in that lighting! Mixed with the water and rocks, this makes one magnificent photo! To me the A340-600 is the Queen of the Skies!

This was the queen of the skies until the airbus a380-800 arrived.
@visitor from the US: her majesty 747-400 and 747 classic both died years ago. Boeing isn't delivering the same quality as years before.
