Flight UPS 235 Creates a Spectacle

What a glorious Day! Sunshine all day, breezy but warm. 
Plenty of work done in the garden. A treat.


Towards sunset a plane passes by, and the vapour trail causes the setting sun to cast a shadow on the clouds above.


Not sure I've seen this before; very beautiful.


Thanks to Flightradar24.com I can tell you that this was a UPS flight from New York, Newark (EWR) Via  London, Stansted (STN)
to: Cologne, Cologne Bonn (CGN) 
and the aircraft was a Boeing 767-34AF (B763)!

Yeah, I know! Just so hard to resist the happy conjunction of 'trainspotting' with amazing pictures
