The view at FL380. We were westbound to San Diego from DC, and I had a window seat. We were at 38,000 ft. I was taking photos, in part so I could "justify" keeping the window shade open. At one point there was a contrail off in the distance, headed generally westbound too, but then the contrail got big, and I could see the aircraft was turning and descending. This was done with the 24-105, the only lens I had with me. I could have easily used a much longer focal length lens. This is really zoomed and cropped, and it was never that close, but it was really pleasantly exciting to see.

Nicely done. I often have problems with more zoom because the three panes in a commercial jet window tend to distort the image.

Thank you! One thing I encountered was an autofocus issue. For some photos, I had to prefocus and go manual focus.

Here are two more from that flight, uncropped. We were in a 757-200 and probably still at FL380 when these were taken. I know we went down to FL340 for awhile to avoid turbulence, but mostly stayed at 380.

Both of those are good, especially the first. You have some good reflexes to capture those, since the other plane is moving 800 to 1000 mph relative to you.

I'm not surprised at the autofocus issue, again focusing through 3 layers of plastic.

Retired? That's even less time than it took the first A380 to retire. :-(

I wonder if it will ever fly again after it retires.

"Built by Boeing Aircraft Company at Everett, Washington and delivered on December 22, 2009. This is the second prototype of the 787-8 Dreamliner to be produced. It participated along with the other prototypes in the aircraft testing and certification that lasted from late 2009 until 2011. After the testing program was completed the aircraft was placed in storage at Palmdale, California. It was donated to the Pima Air & Space Museum in 2015."

Thanks dangermoney, confused me when I saw the ANA livery, didn't think they'd had it in service very long.
