JA782A (cn 33416) Thirty seven minutes after it left Washington/Dulles (IAD/KIAD), this is ANA flt.1 as it passes directly over Hopkins airport on its way to Tokyo/Narita (RJA/RJAA), a 14hr.+ flight. Indeed, it is still airborne as I type this with 3hrs. left to go. This has to be one of my best altitude captures yet!

Very nice! Incredible altitude shot. Looks like that T1i was a good step up. I was curious about that camera.

Wow, what a great shot. So clear... I remember seeing contrails like crazy last Friday. Glad you captured a good one.

Wow...thanks for all the comments! Yes, it was my Canon 100-400L IS lens on top of the T1i body.

Thanks guys! No...not a new lens, but I did upgrade to a Canon T1i recently, I just haven't had any good alt. spotting opportunities since. If this is a sign of things to come I am very happy with it!
