When I first saw the thumbnail pic, I thought it looked like it was a tail scrape, until I enlarged it.

Does look kinda weird though don't you think ?.

Lol, use of a large telephoto lens without much DOF.

Interesting, but I've seen it so many times my eyes weren't tricked enough  Big grin If you look, the taxiway that you think the tailscrape is happening on is in a different direction to the runway the CO 737 took off on. In fact, just by looking at the thumbnail it appears that the runway is actually not even in the picture (would be below it).

Looks to me to be an optical illusion. I don't even think the aircraft is on the ground!

Yeah I also thought that was a picture of a tail scrape until I enlarged it. There was quite a few new good pics from Yevgeny Pashnin from LGA.
