Lol, you found a nice bug there! I placed that sign three (?) years ago, apparently SFO was hit by a small earthquake in the meantime :-)

And, the winner is:


by kyokoyama.

Why I like this shot:

This is closest to what I had hoped to see in this challenge - zooms into technical stuff from an unusual perspective (details on a gear, in an engine block,...). So here we get to see cockpit and pushback both in good detail, and an airport right in the background. The scene appears very natural, and the strong point is that all relevant elements in foreground and background have a high level of detail, whereas the irrelevant elements (apron and sky) are very uniform. This is one of the shots that bring out the best in Flightgear - how there's detail even in procedures not directly linked to being up in the air (let's see who is first to model a ticket counter in an airport... :D ).

Well done!
