Terrific Michael! One of the more beautiful shots I've seen lately. I especially like how the engine fans are lit up by the sun. You really used the 10D to it full potential here. - Brett

Excellent lighting, beautiful plane, exhilarating engines.
Its just that the cockpit windows look a little ugly from this angle.

Great photo, I absolutely love the lighting. Just one question, why is the aircraft's left landing light illuminated while it's right is not?
