Photo were taken while performing a runway 20 approach after a rain show. The fast moving clouds in the far side plus with the beautiful airport scence made this one a superbe photo.Note a Sichuan Airbus was holding for taking off after our clearance of the runway. Special Thanks to Islam_ Chen and Andy Zhang to make this photo possible.

What a beautiful airport. In the mountains, with all those clouds, this picture looks great, even in winter.

I like the combination of moving clouds, and a static scene. Very surreal photo that deserves every praise that it gets. Excellent.

Just returned from Huanglong/Jiuzhaigou, what a gorgeous place. A most challenging airport to land and takeoff. Hats off to the pilots.

Well, this airport is really close to my hometown. I've never been there, though. But it's one of the most beautiful places in China.

Difficult airport to land and takeoff. Head of US FAA was here last summer with her China counterpart to observe the significant improvement of air travel safety of the country.
