    Haven't seen a thread on here regarding aviation night photography. Here are some photo's taken on either a tripod, monopod or taken hand held at a very high ISO and cleaned up during post processing. Shooting at night adds another dimension. Feel free to post your aviation night shots. Enjoy!

    Below shots are from JFK

    They are all very good; but the LAN shot stands out from the rest.

    Nice shots. I'm curious on the second photo what is the mono wheel that is coming down from the tail section for? I have never seen that before
     
  12. Very good images!! That's what got me into photography, airliners. Don't think I have seen a 747F without a company logo, which can hide the fact there are usually no windows down the fuselage. That really stands out in that image, neat shot!

    That's an Ilyushin Il-62. The wheel is to counteract the weight of the four engines while on the ground and is retracted before taxiing.

    OP, very nice night shooting at KJFK and great idea for a thread.

    Love this set. I agree on the LAN shot and also the one with the four tail sections in a row but offset.
