For the first time, a 747 has landed at La Guardia Airport this afternoon. I had a tripod set up and was trying to take pictures of myself with an LGa background when VROOM, overhead comes a PIA 747!

It was making an emergency landing to due a sick passenger who got a nail clipper lodged in her throat (no wonder they don't let them on planes!).

However, those IMPOSSIBLE screeners at anet already rejected it for badpasting, whatever that means. WHAT GIVES? Ok, maybe not the greatest quality, but this is a once in a lifetime picture! Perhaps I'll sue.

Here's the pic:

too many jaggies on the 74. try using the blur function. Also, the aircraft takes too much of the screen. Focus on the person to give a better composition.


When in doubt, one B pump off

Yeah, what a nice surprise Phil. I was shooting a US A319 and didn't even know it was on approach. Here's the shot I got of it:



Not as good as yours but it just caught me by surprise  Smile

More comments, Mike. I like how your pic's lighting matches the rest of the picture, and how the pic is from the came runway and everythign as my version. Although would that really be to scale? Also a very late touchdown if you know the airport. That plane is DEFINITELY going into the drink. lol

Tom Turner took my pic, and Art BRett owns the PIA 747 I used, both with permission.

More pics coming up soon!

ROFLMAO  Big thumbs up I loved taking that shot of Phil, but what sucked was having to save him from drowning after he was knocked into the bay by the vortex turbulence.

Was my PIA shot really that blurry and out-of-focus?

Look now! Mike caught this amazing season transition on film! Notice how the trees behind all buildings are green, and the trees in front of buildings are still leaf-less! Ok, maybe I'm getting a little picky, lol.  Big grin

Once again, great edits, and cool effect when making those trees green (at least some of them)!
