    Fly Me To The Moon

    Not the greatest shot, but I'll take it! Finally, after many moons, I was able to catch this aircraft going through the moon. Taken with the Nikon D7100 + 80-400mm lens.

    The three most common expressions in aviation are, "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" and "Oh Crap".

    Outstanding capture Mark! Sunlight on the bird makes it that much sweeter. Well done.

    Very cool Mark! Man I saw one of these happen last weekend, 4-engine a/c nice and low, just before sunset, blue sky with the whole side of the a/c lit up like that. Where was I? Outside the house with no camera in my hands of course.

    Very nice shot Mark, I am envious as I have been trying to get a shot of a plane in front of the moon for many years, my white whale you may say! I have seen jets pass through the moon several times, of course it has only been because the camera was no where to be seen!
