| A visitor from Brazil posted Fri January 2, 2009:|
The KLM Boeing 747 Cargo had to be "flying very slowly" (laughter). It is a beautiful image and gives an idea to have the speed he was flying.
| A visitor from - posted Thu November 20, 2008:|
Cool..this is what aviation's art
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue November 18, 2008:|

I woulda rated this picture much higher but some nitwit ruined it with graffiti!
| A visitor from United States posted Tue November 20, 2007:|
I wonder from what position the photographer took this photo because it's very good!
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue November 6, 2007:|
I have tried to obtain the same from the ground
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu October 25, 2007:|
It is the biggest trail i have ever seen.
| A visitor from United States posted Tue September 25, 2007:|
Excelent Picture..! Its a non plus ultra..! By the way sometimes I see the Sky from my home and I see Planes making this...Contrails or trails, Domestics or international Flighs.., What means this when they pass over a determined area or Country, What means this..? He is Saluting or Something...?

It´s almost impossible to describe the beauty of this photograph. It can make people dream, even those not interested in aviation. For a 747 fanatic like me, who never flew in one, it gives a unique perspective, a sense of endearment. The best airplane ever made on its element, caught on a truly magical moment, like a child`s dream, the dream of flight, and the majesty of the QUEEN. 747`S forever!!!!
| A visitor from Australia posted Sun August 19, 2007:|
Absolutley Perfect Photo. Angle, lighting and positioning-perfect. Just like the plane.
Long Live The Queen Of The Skies.
| A visitor from Poland posted Thu August 16, 2007:|
At first it look like if the plane was damaged...
And then the rainbow...
| A visitor from United States posted Sun July 8, 2007:|
Wow..if you look closely you can see where the fortex is visible in the engine 1 and 2 contrail.
| A visitor from United States posted Mon July 2, 2007:|
The rainbow between the contrails with the jetstream looping the clouds around it. It just looks awesome.
| A visitor from Belgium posted Sat June 30, 2007:|
This is just plain great... got no words for it
| A visitor from United States posted Sat June 30, 2007:|
Deserves 5* and you are 6 most popular photo of all! excellent
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed June 20, 2007:|
The thing that makes this photo so great for me is that it captures both the calmness of that place above the clouds that I love, but also the speed and power of the aircraft.
| A visitor from Taiwan posted Wed June 20, 2007:|
Great shot on perfect timing!!
| A visitor from - posted Wed June 20, 2007:|
Puts contrails into perspective. It's different to see them this close up, as opposed from 30,000 feet beneath.
| A visitor from United States posted Tue June 19, 2007:|
Has it all- beautiful picture, interesting subject, difficulty in taking the shot. Way to go!
| A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon May 28, 2007:|
The picture is good in timing and composition. It is quite difficult to photograph a passing aircraft and this result is great.
| A visitor from United States posted Sat May 26, 2007:|
This shot is awesome! I have never seen contrails like this before, amazing!
| A visitor from Saudi Arabia posted Thu May 24, 2007:|

| A visitor from United States posted Wed March 22, 2006:|
It demonstrates very well what you are trying to get across to us.
| A visitor from United States posted Wed March 22, 2006:|
As another posted commented, yes the plane is making its own clouds in a way, and by doing so there is a dissucssion on A.Net about how the clouds are contributing, in a small part, to global warming.
| A visitor from United States posted Mon March 20, 2006:|
This is an excellent photo for several reasons, the subject has great positioning, the focus is good, the color is wonderful, and the overall composition is superb!!!!!!!
| A visitor from United States posted Wed March 15, 2006:|
| A visitor from United States posted Tue March 14, 2006:|
WOW!! One summer back in the '90s, I got invited to spend some time in the jumpseat of a BA 777 flying LHR-DXB, and I saw exactly this going in the opposite direction somewhere over Iran. I always regretted not having a camera on hand at the time, but the image has remained in my mind for almost 10 years - Thanks Josef!!!
| A visitor from United States posted Mon March 13, 2006:|
Beautiful angle, beautiful position... BEAUTIFUL SHOT!
| A visitor from Germany posted Sun March 12, 2006:|

The Worlds most beautiful airplane leaving her influence on the sky.
| A visitor from Canada posted Tue January 31, 2006:|
Someone mentioned air pollution. I suggest using google and searching contrails. It's NOT pollution, it's the plane making it's own 'clouds'.
| A visitor from Slovakia posted Sat January 28, 2006:|

You can just see how the vortexes on wing tips turn the vapour around... This is aerodynamics for real. And the photo is marvelous too.
| A visitor from United States posted Sun December 4, 2005:|
This is an excellent photo. I always love watching the exhaust coming out of the planes at 30,000 feet. It is very entertaining!
| A visitor from Germany posted Sun December 4, 2005:|
Great picture - how was it shot??

Well its, better than the pictures of high altitude planes ive taken (0). its a PERFECT picture
| A visitor from Japan posted Thu September 15, 2005:|
Many people like beaches, others like crashes. I like to see the beauty and the power of a bird in flight.
The soft bed of clouds contrasting the turbulent clouds created by the engines, the sun shining on the back of the airplane.
| A visitor from Germany posted Fri September 9, 2005:|
