Photo of the Day (5/8/08)

Our photo of the day today comes from damiel who took this picture from the passenger seat of a Sterling Boeing 737 equipped with colorful winglets. With the outside air probably hovering around -50 degrees F what little moisture in the air during the climb out promptly froze.

By focusing on the ice crystals, he captured another beautiful part of flying. The crystals almost look like little organisms splitting off and growing. For a little color, it’s great that the winglets were painted almost perfectly to go with the deep blue in the sky.

Way to go, damiel!
