Boeing 777 (G-VIIT)

Submitted

I tracked this one on Christmas Eve from about 2 hours out. As a Brit I wanted to see a little part of the Olde Country on Christmas Eve. The weather gods were on my side and all flights were landing to the south so I had my 20 seconds of a great view, as she cruised about 3 miles away from my house with the late afternoon (5.25pm) sun on the fuselage. It was a great feeling to track it, then to be LUCKY enough for the winds to be in the right direction to get my shot. It was a beautiful sight.
