I'm not going to bore anyone with the first 4 shots where the jumbojet filled the frame, I think these two are more fun.

This was the final shot of the 5 the camera took when I depressed the shutter;


And then there's the crop so you can read the text...


Both images are untouched other than;
1st image - compression and resizing.
2nd image - compression and crop.
Some noise is apparent in them, but taking it into neatimage made a clean, clear image.

How did you take these pictures? Were you in another passenger aircraft? Or you were in a F16 or something ? hehehehe

At Heathrow airport, the long stay car parking is directly under the airplanes' flight-path. Heathrow being as busy as it is, you get a plane overhead once a minute... great opportunity to test out a new camera! Bit too tired to stay as I wanted to get home but the few shots that I did take came out well, just thought I'd share this particular one because of the legible text

That's just awesome, because I had some kind of impression that the photo was taken real high up in the sky...like you can see clouds, entrails (I mean..contrails hehe) and all!

Sorry, just realised I hadn't mentioned. This was using the sports mode hence why it took several shots when I pressed the shutter button.

I found the focusing to be pretty darn accurate following the airplane (continuous AF turns on when going into sports mode) and all 5 shots came out well exposed and in focus.
