tried to wait for a plane to enter closer to the center of the moon, but this is the closest I could get

Can you post the original ? I can't put my finger on it but something your doing makes this picture look fake . For one is the moon is so bright and the plane looks so dark and thats not normal . I've seen alot of these type images and yours doesn't look right . Did you perhaps combine two images , one of the plane and the other of the moon ??

Nice, though I'm surprised homeland security let you get close enough to the airport to take this shot.

Where were you for it?

Looks real enough...Do you have a lot of spare time on your hands??

It is from a single shot, from my front yard, with my 500
I lightened the background to help bring out more of the plane

my front yard, it's a bit of a crop, had several planes fly over that night and this one was the closest to the moon

I finally see whats throwing the whole picture off . The moon has a black edge all around it . Thats whats not normal . As bright as the moon is here there should not be a blackened edge . Have you got a way to change that ?? It would look much better .
