Innsbruck looks different this time, great picture that is. Obviously, a steep visual approach for RWY 08 is captured here as well as can be... Thank you for uploading!

That is a very steep glide slope, even taking into account the telephoto compression!

Just like the 'visitor from Spain', I took this to be a climb-out photo as well. I don't think you'd get the bright white lights in the exposure if the plane was landing away from the photographer. Very nice shot!

It is actually a climb out. You can see three white stripes in the beginning, while the centerstripe is fading away. That is actually the retraction of the nose gear.

Great photo Ron. You can tell its a climb out by the red port light...

BTW, the red nav light is the left one. No doubts it's a climb out then;]

There is no way this is an aircraft landing. This type of approach would be insanely steep. Imagine being a passenger on say an A320 or B737 enduring a landing like that? Kudo's to the pilot if he can pull it off......he'd probably lose his job for it though.

Yes, it's definitely a climb. I really don't think that you could follow a glideslope this steep for a landing. Great Photo!

It's a climb out. The red lights is on the left wing tip.

In addition to the steep climb, it looks like a very short roll (unless they turned on the lights halfway through). Are these just illusions due to the angle?

Id say the roll looks short because the shutter button was probably pressed just before or as the aircraft rotated

Amazing photo!
I believe we see a military aircraft during takeoff!
It seems too steep to be an airliner or approach

Is seems to be a taking off airbus.

I would suggest that it's either a charter or an empty ferry flight. Short roll, steep climb, outside the parameters of most civilian carriers.
