Not a usual senery in a airport!!!!!great timing and shot!!!!perfect!!!!nice job....

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 3, 2010:
Right place at the right time! You can even see the lightning through the tower cab windows!

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 31, 2010:
Impressive photo! I enjoy shooting thunderstorms and aviation. Nice work adding the two together!

A visitor from France posted Tue August 31, 2010:
Wow ! Great shot ! And I would not like to be in the taking off airplane

A visitor from - posted Tue August 31, 2010:
I am surprised at how someone caught a split second lightning on cam. Even if it was snapped from a video clip, the focus is brilliant, as it covers sufficient details to show the magnificence of the lightning .

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 30, 2010:
Awesome photo! WOW

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 30, 2010:
So hard to capture this well, but you did it! Thanks from the net!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon August 30, 2010:
Awesome photo!
The lightning is actually behind the tower (You can see it through the windows) but a super capture nonetheless! I also like the strobe path from the lander too!

A visitor from Canada posted Mon August 30, 2010:
That is a rare sight...I hear it only rains every 300 days in Arizona...very well done, keep up the great work.

Just the right moment to press the shutter! Great picture. And finally an explanation for all the weird radar vectors on final...
