Photographer Mike Shore of Austin, Texas took this spectacular photo of a DC-3 airplane from a helicopter. It's so perfectly head-on that it almost looks like an illustration. Shore's Web site is filled with fantastic aviation photos. From Smithsonian Air & Space:

The 70-200mm telephoto lens that (Shore) used to grab this Douglas DC-3D created a compression effect, "in which the subject appears a little more extreme in comparison to the background," he says. "This is all in the glass, and it's a great technique to capture the eye."
