Fast Climbing Aircraft?

Fri Oct 26, 2001 7:56 pm

Take a look at the aircraft taking off in the background. Is that a normal climb?

I think it can´t be an aircraft. It has to be a bird.

I think you guys are right. It does look like bird. Maybe I'm mistaken.

It looks to me like dust on the film. However, it is quite possible for an airliner with a stretched fuselage to appear to climb out steeply when it is heading away from the camera. For example:

It could be a bird, or some dust on the lens, or I think it might be where the airplane has begun a turn to the right and it looks from the point of the camera to be a steep climb.

That last picture almost looks like it came from fs2000.

i think it's dirt as there is another black spot left to the front wheel of the Swissair A330...it's too big to be a bird
