Just to keep the number of entries up and start the ball rolling. A rather distant shot of Lufthansa DC10 just landed at Kai Tak after the famous roof top approach. View from my window, Hong Kong island in the background. (it was either this or a Boeing 707 at a wet Kai Tak)

I'll go with this one, a Lufthansa Cargo MD.11F D-ALCM about to land at Stansted in April 2015. I was pleased with this pic at the time and still like it 3 years+ later...

A few to choose from but this month but, I've gone for something a little different. From 2017 a 'through the fence' shot of Condor's A320 D-AICA in retro livery, seen about to depart Lanzarote before a small audience of onlookers.

Thought i'd throw this one in. The unusual VFW-614, the only one in the UK, based at Cotswold (Kemble) Airport. The VFW-614 Germany's post war attempt at a short haul commercial airliner. It failed, only 19 were built although some did see service with the German Air Force until 1999. Shot on the 29th September during the Threshold.aero photocall: with the added bonus of a splendid sunset.
