Uh.

This is Delores, one of GlennAir's three MD-11s. She's a hangar queen. I hate her. She brings me bad luck in Photoshop. There's so much more I wanted to do to this, but now I can't, thanks to the file being FUBAR'd. =\

*sigh*.

Anyhow.

Lux and Dex flying off /somewhere/ to go deliver cargo all around the world. Lux is happily snoozing away while Dex minds the aircraft. Not that she really minds, though she's tempted to roll the plane just to wake her captain up.

Tons of props to :iconwheaman: who helped me out /a lot/ with the reflections and lighting on the fuselage.

It's a beautiful plane though. And the reflections ended up looking really nice. Though I think I like the clouds more than anything else.

Fantastic job on the cockpit fuselage and it's (or her) interior, including a glimpse of the crew! :D

I'm certain that 36,000 ft is the MD-11's crusing altitude (no online checking, just a guess). At that level, you don't have to worry about hitting any mountain, unless the altimeter's malfunctioned. =p

Nice thing about flying cargo is that she could do a roll, and the cargo wouldn't file a lawsuit. Beautiful sunset lighting.

Well. They're kinda transporting a bunch of feral alpacas... I don't know how the clients would feel about their ferals having gone through such an ordeal. :lol:

Gorgeous image!
I love a lot of the subtle pieces to this picture, for instance the way the tales are placed through the seat, the reflection, the shine from the clouds and the way it makes the sky over the horizon green as it does.

Looks great! I love the details!The clouds look almost real!

P.S Roll the plane!:evillaugh: I red a book where one of the pilots of a private jet went into inverted flight whenever the passengers were rude to him! :lol:

...xD

What book was that?

There was actually an incident in '94 when a soon-to-be terminated FedEx employee attempted to hijack and crash one of their DC-10s and the co-pilot rolled the airplane to help his crew restrain the hijacker.

And thanks! :D

You're welcome!

Intresting!

The book was "The Coffin Dancer" I can't remember theauthor. I know it has a head-on sillouetted view of a jumbo jet ascending against a purple background. Don't know if that's any help. ^^

Steer with your feet! Autopilot is for wimps! :D I'd hate to be the ATC when Dex is flying..

"Glenair #REG you just dropped 1,200 feet, what's your status?"

"Yeah, just did a barrel roll to wake the captain up."
