Just how did the photographer possibly take this shot without risking his/her life? I tried to contact the photographer but no response.

Remotely Triggered from the side of the runway.

That was our guess.

When I saw that picture I thought the same thing  Wow!

It's a damn good shot too, you would be pretty insane to lay under there or something it would just not be possible! Big grin

Would be interesting for the photographer to come forward and reveal, but obviously is MIA at the moment.

Regards,

Justin  Big thumbs up

Cool somehow, a real stunner, I would not put my cam on the runway...  Wink/being sarcastic

No, to be serious, I think he did dozens shots from the end of the runway and picked out the best one. He needed massive zoom, no doubt.

It would be incredible stupid to put a cam on the runway, just imagine the plane taking off a few metres later, could have been a fatal accident.
Just remeber the Concorde accident at CDG years ago... If a tyre hits the cam it would cause damage... maybe a lot of damage...

It is also a pleasure to see this shot, because I flew D-AKNI in August 2003, but the plane is flying for Germanwings now  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Perhaps the photographer is very short and often mistaken for a runway light.

It could happen.

Yup.. it was either the remote trigger or the runway light debacle..

It does happen.

Yes, Of course it could!  Big grin

Florian - There is no way that that photo was taken with a telephoto lens, it was taken on the runway. The only explanation is a camera in one of the runway lights remotely triggered as the aircraft rotates. With a telephoto lens you would not get the same perspective at all, and there would be no motion blur on the front end of the aircraft.

Incredibly well timed as well, i'd imagine to get that point where the aircraft is full frame is EXTREMELY difficult, especially if its a remote trigger!

No way, with loads of zoom the shot doesnt look like this. This is wide angle for sure.
