...the image is actually properly exposed. The scene looked JUST LIKE that! The sun being directly overhead created little in the form of shadows and the surface of the pane being what it is, created the effect of it being washed out.

But note the dynamic range as the blacks are black and shadows are deep. It would look fine 1/3 and 2/3 and even 1 stop underexposed as well. It comes down to taste in the end, not absolutes.

Again, thanks for the kind words and not so kind observations

Nice shot(s) - they look good on my calibrated monitor as well. In the spirit aerial refueling, here's a few more, but Navy-style and from an earthbound position (I envy you getting to capture the airborne perspective!):
