Very cool shot! It's outstanding even on the lousy monitor at work. Can't wait to see it on a better one.

That's a great image! Very well done, especially considering that the plane was probably in that position for just a moment.

Thank you all for your very kind comments ! They are really appreciated.

I was actually birding and watching the moon rise - although the sun was below the horizon for me, for the plane, at that height, it was still above the horizon and illuminating the fuselage. No other planes were getting anywhere near being in the frame but I tracked this one and luckily it just made it into the 510mm frame !
