What a trip this picture is. First, it feels as if it was taken TODAY because of the awesome clarity and colour of the original image and the time and effort made to convert it to digital for us to all enjoy. THANK YOU GARY!!! Please upload more of these sweet gems if you have them.

I used to see these daily at East Midlands Airport. I can hear the engines now. Awesome! Thanks for sharing this superb picture.
