You need to be in a plane to do that...a chase plane.

The planes don't fly very near another plane. There is a limited distance, in wich airliners can fly safely. If you have camera with zoom, you can't make photo throw window too, because planes are fast, and they "run" out of camera's objective.

Ever hear of a chase plane? It's normally a learjet or military plane that flys within a very close distance.

Ever hear of Clay Lacy? He flies a Lear within 500 feet, and his crew snaps pics with an 80mm lens.

I made some pics of an F-16 fighterjet from the cockpit of a KC-10 tanker..... would that make the KC-10 a chase plane )

:-) I can tell you, some of the air to air I have taken was a lot closer that 500 feet. In terms of distance for instance, when flying in forms with helicopters, they usually talked a distance of 1 1/2 rotors between aircraft. A KC 10 as a chase plane... yeah i can see that, couldn't call it the fastest could you :-)
