20 years ago, this sight would not be possible: Only after the Israeli-Jordan peace treaty was signed, Royal-Jordanian airplanes landing and flying across Israel's 100 km width aloft. There is a designated air-route from Aman via above Israel and out to the Mediteranean, en-route Europe, that saves time and money - unless, a big detour would be needed.
Royal-Jordanian Airbus A310-304 cargo, registration: JY-AGR, two GE CF6 engines, in service since 1988.
On final landing-path at Ben-Gurion airport runway 12.

Dobar dan, popodne.
Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazan avion sa spustenim trapom za sletanje.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepe boje.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.

an impressive, large and heavy airplane, captured with superb sharpness, all its distinctive features easily seen for a thorough study. I like very much how it's set off flying in the soft blue sky. The light in your picture is very agreeable. You've also provided for very useful information in your note. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

The aircraft is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and the colors Of the Royal Jordanian Airbus A310-304. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

For a relatively minimal image, it sure has a lot of meaning behind it as you pointed out. Glad that history has progressed in this manner, making things easier and more enjoyable for all parties involved....still along way to go though. Without the context of space and distance, this looks a little odd to see the wheels down...but it also hints to those aspects just the same. :) Well taken with clarity to capture its detail and form. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

It would are a lot of better that all countries make a close good agreement.
This not alone for the airplanes but also for the people, maybe is this an illusion.
Very well picture, nice composition, excellent captured.
Nice done, TFS.

I liked the dark color of the plane and this crown on it. interesting note about the route. some time ago I asked for a tourist agent about the possibility to visit jordania and Israel at same time and he said it would be better not do this in the same trip.
