    Did you see the manufacturers name on the toilet role - it's very faded - it says "Immelmann - Roll off the top"

    Well I beat the toilet roll by one place with this one (in points but not in votes!) Lol! It is still my personal favourite! Appreciate all the comments and this time, especially the votes!

    Ronoz This was not meant for envy just for beauty (and there was nobody between me and this beautiful view!)

    Mepo At times? Most always! In some ways it feels that you're alive there and are merely marking time on the ground until your life resumes...

mrsawyer It is the colours that captivated me; an uncommonly clear day where you truly feel you have "...slipped the surly bonds..."

    "I've giv'n her all she's got captain, an' I canna give her no more." What a wonderful view. I never get tired of looking out of an aircraft window. I've never been this high looking out in front so am totally envious. I'm guessing there must be times when you just don't want to come down. Great shot - thank you for sharing.

    The colors and orientation of this shot work well here.

This reminds me of a poem called "High Flight" I memorized as a child. It used to play just before midnight when the TV station signed off for the night.

    elliot Rocky Mountains - more precisely the northern end of the Monashee and Selkirk ranges somewhere above 30,000 feet ASL.

    SS Type was experimental, Lol! I was torn between this and a shot showing the curvature of the earth taken a bit earlier in the flight.

fc Actually technically speaking.. oh, forget the technical!

    Another reason to be jealous of fighter pilots, what a view! What kind of plane is this, the HUD looks pretty spiffy. I might have tried to take out a little more of the blue haze over the mountains in post-processing, but it's a small complaint.
