This is one of the best shots I've ever seen.
One word to describe this shot would be: Wow!

Great Work Josef!

Anybody have an idea of the registration on this one? It looks like an SUD but, beyond that, I can't tell. I think it is probably a combi, too, since all of KLM's SUDs are combis as far as I know.

Awesome pic! Definitely worthy of a wallpaper!  Big thumbs up


Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

This truely is an amazing photo.

But just one thing: i wonder how friendly this aircraft really is to the environment. From first glance i would have guessed that this was a B707 or DC-8.  Insane LOL!

The next post will be:

"Don't you know that this is not smoke but just clouds and a 747 is actually pretty good to the environment...blablabla!"

Still, amazing picture! But nothing for Greenpeace. They won't understand!

The "smoke" you usually see coming from an airplane's engines are just clouds being scattered by the engines as they go through them.

Tekelberry-

Actually, that is condensation. The aircraft is probably flying at the point where water condenses, forming it's gassy counterpart, condensation, and then it will freeze, forming ice. It is not cloud.

This is a great photo, but how environmentally clean is that aircraft? To me it looks like there must have been a fuel leak or something.
