Crecent Moon Meets Full Moon

A Pakistani International Airlines Boeing 777-240/ER tail grazing the rising near full moon while on short final to runway Two-Eight at Chicago's O'hare International Airport. The Crecent Moon and star on the tail is a symbol of the Islamic faith, and actually predateds the founding of the Islamic faith

Thanks to Koz for pointing out the rising moon would intersect runway 28 traffic. It certainly was a first in a lifetime experience shooting these scenes. This was also my first time to photograph a PIA jet liner. I have seen it many times, but always while driving to/from O'hare
