Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme:
"Airplane!"

Description:  Since this is contest #747, show us pictures of airplanes. In the air, on the ground, flight capable, toys, or models are all fair game. Difficulty: Must be an airplane and not a helicopter or other rotorcraft

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.
- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or Farktography.com (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.

/ not going to 'enhance enhance, to the left, enhance,' any more to eliminate mystery (more sensor schmutz would be visible too)
// Blue Angel low flyover + SF fog = my reproductive bits were shaken not stirred
/// Yes, this was taken from Al Capone's yacht, thanks for noticing

Posted ones similar to this in the past, but not this one.  Still amazed at the wingtip to canopy separation they can maintain.

Just after departure from LWS, Runway 26, headed to Indiana, via SLC and ORD. That's the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater Rivers, with Clarkston, WA, to the left, Lewiston, ID, just below the wing, and a REALLY SCRATCHY window obscuring my view :P
