I don't normally post two of the same but even with all the viewing, PS-ing I hadn't noticed the heat effect from an errant APU distorting the nose of this until I uploaded it so posted the taxiing shot.

Gavin, heat distortion caused by APUs or by jet engine exhaust are all natural effects when aircraft are the object being photographed. How unreal would a photo of a jet taking off or landing or reversing thrust or taxiing look if there was no heat distortion caused by the exhaust of the engines, etc. There is nothing wrong with this photo. This is a real aviation picture -- not a photoshopped one like many that are being posted here more and more frequently. Check out that guy in PHX; his most recent are all PSed with fake cloud backgrounds. (PS 2020 has a new feature where phoney backgrounds can be inserted on to pictures.) Yours are 100% real. Five stars and keep 'em coming, please. (Wave)
