HB-JMH (cn 585) Awesome crosswind landing going on here - nonstop from Tokyo - in front of an amazing scenery! There seems to be no way this plane is ever gona stop on this short little runway...runway 14 is 3.3km long of course. It had rained all night what resulted in superb visibility: The mountains in the back are 50km and futher away! I was standing about 2km from the point of touchdown...considering that it came out quite good. A big thanks again goes out to Paul Markman for the editing!

The difficulty in obtaining such a shot given the distances involved should not be understated. The result is not just a photograph of an aeroplane, it's a portrait of an airliner doing its job.

Excellent picture! As a previous visitor to Zurich on a spotting trip, I know those mountains are very far away, and yet here you make it look so close! Thanks very much for this superb photograph.
