How exactly does one achieve an angle like this?

Just amazing...wonder how Daniel know the D and D brothers  Big grin
Keep em coming  Big thumbs up

P.S. I think anyone can do a charter and flyover, it is down to a matter of luck if you can catch something good like a 747 rotate under your plane. That dosen't always happen, the chance we estimated is 20% or so. Also you need the perfect timing factor, i.e. sometimes you get the 747 pass right under you, sometimes you get the plane coming up towards you (like in this photo) and sometimes you get the 747 going towards the pacific ocean

Brilliant shot, I am sooo jealous.

As to answer (once again) how it was done, in heavily controlled zones, to go to one airfield close to a large airport, the pathway is often... right above the large airport - flying right over the runways means you are unlikely to bother approaching or departing flights.

We have such a patchway here if we want to go to Lyons Bron from the east, we have to overfly LYS runways at exactly 2000 Ft QNH.

Comments of those pictures (so you don't have to click on them Smile/happy/getting dizzy ) will say : On our way from Lyon Bron back to Chambery. The exit path eastwards out of Bron takes us over LYS, while flying at 2000 ft QNH. Flight Path out of Bron is usually right overhead LYS, however, due to departure in progress (note the aircraft holding short of 08L), the ATC asked us to transit south of the installation, giving me a full overview opportunity.

Unfortunately, LYS does not really have the same traffic as LAX... and at that time, I did not have the same camera as I have now.
I'm supposed to fly solo there tomorrow. Rhaa, how are you supposed to take a picture when holding your aircraft at a level altitude ?

cheers,

707

In 6-7yrs of visiting this website that has to easily be one of the top five photos ever uploaded.

I've never been a big fan of all those damn St Maarten's shots in the "Top of all time" category anyway. But this sort of shot easily becomes very famous simply through the amount of effort and skill (luck!) put in to achieve the end result.

Daniel you have achieved something hardly any of us will ever experience and you have caught it in a most superb manner. Sell the pants off that one and relish in the praise you deserve.

Your work consistently speaks for itself!

One of the top five shots of all time here at airliners.net? I think so!

(Peter, don't tell me we agree again!!)

Thanks for the nice comments guys.
It was really a treat to take this picture. It all comes together then: skill, the right equipment and of course some luck.
First our shoreline request was turned down by ATC but after we landed in Hawthorne we got the clearance. Fortunately we were right in time for the 744.
