First off... great to see your Global Africa Aviation has made it to the cover. Also looks like the Polar went through on appeal. Nice.

As for these four.... They look okay. The SZ 738 and the 3U A321 look to have some slight grain in the sky, but it could just be I'm still on my work computer.

VS346 and B6321 (UE) to be appealed. I'll rework the others for centering. The B6 321 with HIF do you really see that one as high?

The 738 I'll add another pass of sharpening to. It was shot on my 7D2 at 300+ and I'm used to working with images off my 70-200. However, those banking departures can make some of the pain worth it.
