Let's organize a little show. I would like you to plug here what YOU do consider as YOUR best shot on Airliners.net.
I know it is a difficult exercice for modest people who have a lot of pics in the database but I'm sure that most of you will be able to pick up one and explain briefly their choice.

Remember the rules : only 1 shot and it must be your own !

Don't be shy guys Big grin

Luis,

LOVE that shot! It shows the spotter, and the spotted.

Superb effort, saw it when it was added and loved it. Still love it!

My personal favourite today would have to be:-

It just looks good, taken handheld in awful weather and it turned out better than I expected!

I don't have one single most favorite shot, but lately I would say this simple one is. I took this shot this past spring and it really reminds me now of a time when life was peaceful in my backyard. Reminds me of tranquility and when I used to look at airliners as non-threatening machines of beauty, just crawling around the tarmac... the shot also reminds me of two close friends gone now. A time when everyday life was just your average day around here. But everything change forever on September 11th, 2001.

But the deep blue of the sky and the Atlantic Ocean in the background make this shot for me.

That and the memories...the sun, the sand, the s**...I mean, my lady...

A great trip!

Hey Vasco

Who is the 'bird' in the photograph?
Real or cardboard cut-out?
Did she move to Germany with you?
Were you photographing her when the plane happened to come along or vice versa?? Big grin

Too true - I just don't remember seeing the clear sky. It was always cloud, cloud, cloud when I was there!  Sad

Hi Stefan

Beautiful pic of the TAROM 707.

What makes it special to me is that I have flown on the exact aircraft......albeit in the old red cheatline livery.
