This looks very much like a USAF KC-135R to me. Remarkable features are the black nose, big engines, tailband, fuselage color and apparent titles under left wing.

Now if you have an exact timing for this shot, you may be able to trace the callsign and even the exact serial via that ATC-software that some people try to keep track of. Maybe some dot-spotters may be able to tell you more about this.

Good luck,
Iwan

The 737 is a Centralwings plane.

Thanks !


Saturday 16-02-08 Capelle aan den IJssel,

1 Emirates is already dominating the sky above Capelle, I can 't wait to see them flying the A380.

Image

2 Most of the time you see them flying T7's, this is an A330.

Image

3 PIA

Image

4 Virgin A346 ( regular above Capelle )

Image

5 Yesterday the route from Frankfurt to the states was above Capelle instead of more to the north. Also saw United 747 and US airways A330.

Image

6 Gulf Air A330

Image

7 Compared to the contrail the Austrian Fokker looks even smaller.

Image

8 Just quit visiting Brussels, Jet Airways is also to see above Capelle.

Image

9 The whole day I was waiting for a famous 'cross the moon-shot', just missed one with 2 seconds ( I saw the contrail passing the moon , not the plane ) :? :? :evil:
This shot was made @ 17:35 ( still daylight ) handheld at 1/800 F/8 ISO 200 ( it's a bit oversharpened )
