[18:43] "Virgin 34 Heavy" prepares to cross the Atlantic to Gatwick (EGKK). The USAF antenna station in the background was constructed in the 1950s to track intercontinental ballistic missiles launched from Cape Canaveral (CCAFS) & manned or unmanned space vehicles in low Earth orbit using radar or telemetry.

The Info details are very clear. the photographer seems to have a good eye and a very good vantage point.....but all in all the scenery in background compliments the aircraft very well the lush green hill as well the antennaes with the blue of the sea in the background

Very sharp & well lit image. One could imagine those fuel laden wings flex gently on the slow taxi.
