I've been doing quite a bit of air-to-air work recently, and those images will show up when the time is right, but my most recent flight had me in the back of the aircraft for, essentially, a ride-along. It's always good to fly, at least for me, and I always have a camera. (Actually, I had three because, well, that's what I do!) The point is, shooting when the subject aircraft is not the subject is a good thing to do. (Think "background," "environmental," "mood," "mission.")
Here are three images from the air, created when the opportunities presented themselves. The first is of Detroit Metro Airport. A good, clean, balanced composition, shot on a clear day, showing the air transport industry at work.
Next, a couple of bends in the "Red Mountain" section of the Arizona 202 loop around Phoenix, shot after sunset while returning to base, illuminated by a dim golden sky to the west (behind me).
A water park near downtown Denver, heading to capture the subject ship over the capitol building. It was mid-afternoon with high clouds, yielding this very soft illumination.
Three different situations, three different opportunities to bring home images that might be useful, somehow, sometime. It's what a photographer does! (Well, it's what this photographer does.)
