Please place only one of your favorite photos from the DB and if you like note the reason you chose that shot.
Also if this thread is in any violations of the rules please remove as i did not intended to cause any problems.
My personal favorite is this shot by Glenn Stewart.

It is very very hard to choose only ONE picture, but I'll join the game:

For me, it doesn't get any better. My favorite plane on a gorgeous day. I was hanging with Tom and company earlier that day and had to leave for somewhere else. Where I was is another reason why it was so memorable.  Smile

I have to say that my favourite images tend to be those that involve the beauty of natural phenomena with the subject.

A great example of this would be this photo by Luis, who has a number of gorgeous sunset and fiery sky images on the database:

My favorite aircraft is the 777-200, And I love United, their new color scheme and the 777-200. And I just love the angle of this shot showing how big the 777 really is.

Just love the picture. Cockpit lighting is perfect! I just can imagine how great it would be to wake up at 4am and to do that. Get paid to sit in the flight deck and fly! Just a perfect picture!

All,

This shows that we are all unique:

Why?

The old Kai Tak is the most impressive airport I've ever flown to and Hong Kong itself is a pretty special place. Also, the 707 did more than most planes to bring jet travel into people's lives.

We shouldn't underestimate the progress in optical technology and despite being decades old, this photo manages an excellent balance between foreground and background, in a place that invariably suffers from non-perfect visibility. This is as good as it gets, in my opinion.

Cheers

I probably like this one the best out of all of them because the way the sunlight is beaming off the engine and how you can see quite a distance and also the snow on the ground looks great as well.
We dont worry about small things like that...
