    The majority of the fuselage is in the shadow so yes, at the moment the image was captured, the light source was coming from behind the aircraft, i.e. backlit

    The midtones could also be brightened a bit which didn't help the image during screening.

    And just a general note to uploaders, backlit doesn't always refer to the suns position when an image is captured. Backlit indicates that there is more light behind the aircraft than in front and this may be due to dark clouds blocking the sun even though it is on the correct side of the aircraft.

      and this meens it is impossible to show aircrafts which are flying with more than 45deg bank like here

        At 1230 hrs, looking east ....... Yes, the fuselage will be backlit. At 1330 hrs and later, looking east the fuselage will maybe not be backlit. Unfortunately time and location work against you to the point where a useable phot opportunity does not present itself.
        It's a case of not just framing a photo in the viewfinder and hitting the shutter button, it's looking at the picture you are taking and assessing its suitability when you hit the shutter button.
        I well remember a visit to RAF Waddington for the annual air show. The problem at Waddington is that the sun is in front of you until around 1330 -1400hrs so I had to capture airborne aircraft when they turned sufficiently to be lit along the side. It meant concentrating on what I was taking and not just randomly clicking away. I didn't bother shooting anything airborne in the morning, concentrating instead on the static display where I could position myself according to the light.

        Digital photography has saved the photographer a fortune in film but in the days of film you had to think about each shot. With digital we tend to just clatter away on the shutter giving little thought to what we are recording.
        If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

            There good be a lot of discussion about when back lit is acceptable or not. For me counts that as long as the subject is completely and clearly visible (as in your case) I think it should be acceptable. But The rules here are what they are and therefore your picture is rejected.
