Perfect lighting today shows off this Virgin 747 lifting off Runway 06L for the journey across the Atlantic. In the background are Manchester's recognisable Control Tower, together with the British Airways Terminal 3.

Perfect lighting is right! It is very soft and gives a nice glow to the aircraft. Great shot.
