Default Polar Air 747F

With its 4 GE CF-6 Engines each producing 47,600 lbs of thrust (check out the jet-wash on the port side), this Polar 747-F climbs out of Runway 18L at Cincinnati. Aaahhh...the intoxicating aroma of jet fuel...

Photo was snapped about 5:00 PM in what I thought was some nice lafternoon Autmn lighting.

Nikon D300s + Nikkor 70-200 f2.8 + Nikor 1.7 TC.
