Nice catches there Derek!

Love the AA oneworld livery. Do you know why the VS A320 has an EI reg?

It's a sub-leased aircraft from Aer Lingus they are using. Nice set, that overhead shot looks rather close!

Thanks for the comments folks. The CityJet RJ and Etihad 777 were actually separated by 5000ft vertically and almost a mile laterally.

That's interesting. It's a remarkable picture, the RJ looks too small but as you say it's over a mile "under" and a mile away.

The other ones are pretty good too!

Thanks for that, that's quite remarkable. The brain (or at least my brain) is still befuddled. Is it shot of the week yet?

They also using Aer Lingus crew and I would guess the 146 is at 30,000ft and the 777 is at either 35,000ft or 36,000ft, Awesome shots there
