Visibility III / V

Ben Kalland, Ursa (Helsinki)

I didn't plan this. I was photographing a sunspot in the morning when Finnair's Airbus hit the picture. If I had left out the barlow lens, the whole machine would have fit. The picture shows how the heat and water vapor coming from the engines messes up the air and reduces visibility.

According to Flightradar, it was AY1751 from Helsinki to Milan.
