Remark Photographer
For sure one of the most beautiful airports in the world. Check in the threshold of RWY 20L a Boeing 737 blasts water as full power is applied. In the oposite threshold my friend and spotter Bernardo Andrade was taking some pictures. [Canon EOS 30D - Brenda]

This has to be the most amazing aerial view of the Rio de Janeiro International airport I have ever seen anywhere in the web! It takes the #1 spot hands down!! I will certainly add it as wallpaper in my PC screen today. What a shot!!

For the folks commenting about the island in the lower-right side of the picture, that's the Villegagnon Island, seat of the Brazilian Navy Academy. Surely a place drenched in history!
