I won't write down here what I said upon seeing this pic.

My post would be rejected for 'Badlanguage' Big grin

Stunning!

I agree with the "badlanguage" comment! Rather a tight turn there on the NW 747!

I'm lost for words!

All the best,

Nice....Amazing actually. Who's this Bailey guy? Is he a pilot or so? He probably is.

That's why I'd love to be a pilot. Not for actually flying the damn plane, but more for having such amazing photo opportunities Big grin Big grin

I almost feel embarrassed by this shot because I was sure it would be rejected for bad distance. Thanks Gary and everyone else for your kind words.

I do have another shot which I think is better and it appears my private screener, the cigar toting resident diaper expert Mr Murray, has approved it.

Thanks again and hello to all the familiar names here.

Welcome to the "Editors Choice" club Ejazz! I see it's been added there today also, and look at the hits climb!

Extremely impressive work! This kind of shot would want to make any jet pilot wanna buy a camera quick smart - I know one who now carries his camera on every flight..... I'm sure he'll get some gems on his latest trip to Europe.

I don't think your Aussie adventure this week will yield such results.

CM

Psst - Southerners, he'll be in your neck of the woods this week, be sure to shoot every 777 you see (just look for the one with the big white lens hanging from the flight deck!!!!).
