Looks like you need a higher res image texture on the background geometry. Pixels are still pixels when brought in to 3D, so you'll get ugly results from enlarging a low-rez image in maya, just like you would in photoshop.

Would making the background and the aircraft smaller work?

No, that would only make the scene smaller. Why not just doing a google search for sky texture, or just plain old "sky" and make sure you have Large selected for image size. Or just do a quick web search for it and maybe you will find some good texture websites.

EDIT: SHAZZAM. how do you like me now? Nice model by the way.
(make sure you save the WHOLE PICTURE, just hold your cursor over the picture until a little box in the bottom right corner comes up, then click on it, it should enlarge. Then just right click, save picture as)

Did you made an Image plane in maya and rendered the whole thing together?
or did you render the aircraft on its own to set the rendered picture on the sky picture?

Um, did you not read what I said. Just get one of the pix I put from the links on the plane, you will have a much higher resolution, and therefore better pictures. READ FOOL (dr. T accent)

you can render the aircraft and render also the alpha channel
then you take Photoshop or any other good image editing prog and you load your background image an make a good size to it so the quality is good. then you load up you rendered aircraft image and in PS you simply have to drag the image (which shoud be only the aircraft without the black background from maya render) into you sky image.

Why not just render it with both the plane AND the background plane. All you need to do is replace the cloud picture that you have on the plane (background plane, not flying plain) with one of the pictures that are on the websites that I put up. Not that hard really.

Then you wont get the proper reflection with the paste the airplane on the sky.

Edit: How about a pic of what happened after you rendered my idea?

If you render without the image plane, just map the image to reflection chanel of your shader. Then composit in Photoshop or equivalent. If you use the image alienscience found of the sunset, remember to light the scene correctly
