Inspired by the Top Three Holiday Photos and Best Photographs of Aircraft threads, I thought it would be nice to have a place for AFF members to share their favourite photos they've taken either of a plane, or from an aircraft window.

I'll post a few of my favourite snaps below, but I'm sure other AFFers have much better photos! Please feel free to share yours in this thread.

Some of my favourite photos of planes...

A Buffalo Airways DC3 in Yellowknife:

An Air Do Boeing 767 prepares to depart CTS in winter:

Three Retro Roos, all lined up:

And a Qantas 747 at SCL - because there's no feeling quite like seeing a Qantas jumbo jet arrive to take you home when you've been away for a long time:

And a few of my favourite shots from out the window...

The Chilean Alps:

QF63 over Antarctica:

And of course, Sydney Harbour (seen here from a Qantas Boeing 737-400 in around 2012):

Some of my favourite pics aren't impressive on their own but very personal because they're linked to the start/end of a significant trip. Here are a few:

You hardly ever get this in normal flying - this was on a seaplane returning after lunch at Berowra Waters Inn.

This one's meaningful because it was the end of my first European trip - and I was about to get on this aircraft with a FASA :)

Happened to get this when flying MEL-KUL.
