amazing picture. How in the world did you achieved a sharp airplane-body and the condensation spirals.
To picture the Condensation spirals you need a long shutter speed but you do not see that in de rest off the picture

First it's a great shot! I was reminded of my days of flying the 'ancestors' of this model in 'Nam! ;) In fact, the thumbnail appeared to be a black and white image with jungle in the background.

The photographer may not have even seen the trails until he viewed the image. The shutter speed was probably as fast as possible to hopefully 'stop' the props and avoid blurring the whole image while the camera was moving to keep the subject in the frame. A sometimes difficult task in less than bright light or being near the subject. Well done in this result! Congrats! ;)
