Where is this photo not sharp? I understand the mean walking around but it's a long exposure shot.

Take a close look at the letters C and O at com and E and N at Friendly, I think they are blurry.

Sharpness is really a tough issue to cope with.

I hope to see your pictures published soon.

Best regards.

I agree with Ricardo.

I think it is about the aperture setting, as it looks like some vignetting and maybe a close distance.

Sharpness is best in the middle of the picture.

Sorry to say, but I don´t think You can save this picture. Though it is a very nice one.

Regards, Bjarne

Did you shoot through a window? That would explain the huge difference of sharpness of different areas of the picture and also why some edges are doubled. Quite obvious in the "n" of Friendly, the cone near the wheel, the "c" of com, and the over all, the front edge of the tail. That double image makes the picture to look soft, and an airport window glass can and will always (probably) affect to sharpness in unexpected ways.
