It's an oldy so excuse the quality, but I just love it!

The pilot really held the nose high after landing, it just kept going higher and higher and it really looked like it would "tailscrape" on landing.....no easy feat I'm sure!

My favorite shot... at my favorite spot (it also need some rescanning). I hope this spot at about 40 meter from the runway will still be accessible in the future...

This must be my favourite touchdown-shot, the 747SP looks so damn great!

Here is another one of my favourites, not that popular though, but I think it looks quite impressive with all that smoke.

At least a 50ft trail. It actually looks a bit more impressive in the larger version  Big grin (seriously though it does)

Calgary is a DRY DRY City.. Not enuf humidity to create much of a decent smoke.

Bo, smoke of touchdowns is caused by dry dry runways, not by humidity. So Calgary is good for smokey touchdowns.

I like Jason's BWIA best, but for the sake of adding one of my own, another high nose one.
