Just a masterpiece !
| A visitor from United States posted Thu September 13, 2012:|
I love the view of the cockpit! As a pilot I can "feel" the turn with them! Love it!
| A visitor from Australia posted Wed December 14, 2011:|
Very spectacular jk

Interesting. Flaps 30. Gear down. 140 knots and at that steep of a bank angle. Wait, they're actually in a slight climb. Rather, they are in a relatively level turn. Great photo. Held camera level with horizon....great job.

This is a thrilling view of a flight crew of a large aircraft in a 45 degree bank with a beautiful view through the windscreen. You feel that they do this all the time. Everything normal.
| A visitor from Canada posted Wed June 1, 2011:|
He was turning his heading 90 degrees, not a bank of 90 degrees
| A visitor from - posted Tue May 3, 2011:|
Nice photo. 90deg turn, I don't think so. More like 30deg.

This is an amazing shot!

Nice view of cockpit.

A pretty steep turn for an airliner
| A visitor from Mexico posted Fri March 4, 2011:|
Beautiful picture !!!!
| A visitor from - posted Fri January 14, 2011:|
Impressive, just incredibly impressive! Surely one of the best aviation photos I've ever seen!

Amazing view from the aerial balcony !

| A visitor from Portugal posted Sat September 25, 2010:|
The reason i think this photo is great is because i've never seen such a dynamic view from inside the cockpit! If the aircraft was lined up with the horizon at the time the photo was taken, it would be completely different...
| A visitor from United States posted Thu August 5, 2010:|
Excellent detail, interesting angle. Very high resolution photo of the flight deck! Impressive!

It feels so real; like your in there with them! You can even see the bank on the attitude indicator :)
| A visitor from United States posted Fri March 26, 2010:|
Nice Nice turn
| A visitor from United States posted Mon February 22, 2010:|
Cool, calm, and in control... these guys are pros all the way!
| A visitor from Switzerland posted Sat February 20, 2010:|
It is so dynamic. I just feel like being in the cockpit. Thanks! (Sb from Switzerland)
| A visitor from - posted Fri February 12, 2010:|
Come on now thats a great feeling co pilots left hand resting on knee
| A visitor from - posted Wed January 20, 2010:|
That is some good ol' fashion flying for you! Gear down, flaps to 30 and a nice hard bank to the right adding power to compensate for the drag in the turn. Excellent! -Jason 5*

I know that I would feel heavy in my seat during a banked turn, but what happens to a cup of coffee if I held it in my hand? :-)
| A visitor from Portugal posted Sat October 31, 2009:|
I every year go the Island of Madeira, therefore I have family and I have a friend who is pilot in TAP. I always ask for to see the cabin in the landing and I think that the photo, in this angle, is a very good photo and shows the difficulty that is to landing in Island of Madeira. Great job!!!
| A visitor from South Africa posted Thu October 1, 2009:|
My father is the captain on the left. I found this photo on a aircraft photo slide show, and it's one of my favorites! Well done to the photographer! A truly amazing photo
| A visitor from Gibraltar posted Wed September 30, 2009:|
That is some serious 30degree banking happening there! 5*

| A visitor from Morocco posted Sun July 19, 2009:|
Simply wow. I get "renversed" when I see this picture.
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat June 27, 2009:|
Such a simple trick, making the horizon level not the aircraft, but it puts you right in the frame, you can feel the turn as you look at it.
| A visitor from United States posted Wed June 10, 2009:|
Who says airline pilots just fly autopilots?!?! Stick and rudder all the way! 5*

I have no words to describe the features shown by you from a aircraft.I always like those photos taken from inside the cockpit or from outside runways while landing and takingoff. all are beyond imagination. i really appreciate this photograph .

| A visitor from United States posted Tue March 17, 2009:|
Landing in Madeira is amazing! They seem to have thier cool.
| A visitor from United States posted Mon January 5, 2009:|
Fantastic! This is by far the best cockpit shot I have seen.
| A visitor from - posted Tue November 25, 2008:|
Amazing shot in an incredible moment. Would not want to be eating anything when this happened.
| A visitor from Russian Federation posted Tue November 25, 2008:|
Cool bank angle in the landing configuration =)
| A visitor from Germany posted Fri August 29, 2008:|
That's the best shot of an flightdeck I've seen so far!
Is there a better one than the 1600*1079 resolution available here?
I would like to print a poster of it. It would be great if someone could help me... ;)

Wat a view is beautiful feels like ur there
| A visitor from United States posted Sun May 18, 2008:|
The guy that shot this did a great job. i would never thought to level the camera with the horizon
| A visitor from Mexico posted Thu May 15, 2008:|
I can't beleive how is that someone can take the photo in a turning like that 40-45 degree right bank.
The pilots are very concentrated.
| A visitor from United States posted Sun May 4, 2008:|
Much detail and perceived tension.
| A visitor from United States posted Mon April 28, 2008:|
The calm and poise of the crew and gives some idea of g-s pulled.

Beutifull image and not usual that bank angle. And of course i
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon March 10, 2008:|
I went to that airport before, it was brilliant! love the landing stuff!!!
| A visitor from Venezuela posted Thu March 6, 2008:|
I think this pic is great because the common people can not access to pilots seats, it is a seldom sight for the most of the passengers in the world.it's my point of view, thanks.
| A visitor from United States posted Thu March 6, 2008:|
Awsome i love the 737-700s
| A visitor from United States posted Sun December 30, 2007:|
There goes my lunch. Wonderful shot. You can just the concentration of the pilot, and then see the incline that plane is at! I've been through a few steep turns, and I have to say I can never seem to sit still!
| A visitor from Turkey posted Mon December 17, 2007:|
This is my favorite cockpit shot so far...
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri December 7, 2007:|
It givesme the impression that the pilot & co pilot are wrestling with a monster , and the ground is comming up so fast as if to devour them !!!!!!!!!!!
| A visitor from India posted Wed November 21, 2007:|
The cool attitude of pilots in front of lots of information and an inclined plane!
| A visitor from United States posted Tue November 20, 2007:|
The Captain looks a little strained, but the Copilot looks relaxed. Still awesome place to be right then!
| A visitor from Canada posted Mon October 29, 2007:|
I think this is one of the best photos you can see while banking and in such detail!! both inside and out.The crew appears to be so focused and the aircraft seems to be quite low. Great picture and Thank You and keep up the good work. Sincerely,Themton Irani, Mississauga, Canada.
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat October 20, 2007:|
Stunning shot - so much detail! The bank of the aircraft compared with the horizon makes me dizzy even viewing the photo on my laptop in comfort of home...
| A visitor from Germany posted Tue October 16, 2007:|
So clear and sharp. The slope angle is great!
| A visitor from South Africa posted Fri September 28, 2007:|
The photo clearly makes one feel part of the crew - I even feel the G's!
| A visitor from United States posted Thu September 6, 2007:|
This is my first time on this website and this image truly shows the quality of the photographers that post on this site.
| A visitor from France posted Thu August 9, 2007:|
and great pilots !
(especially if they managed to land... ^^)
| A visitor from United States posted Thu July 26, 2007:|
Looks like there are two captains here. Excellent picture with a lot of detail.
| A visitor from Australia posted Wed July 18, 2007:|
I've always wondered how much visibility the pilots have when making these turns. Awesome and they look so relaxed. I personally hate it when the pilots make last minutes banks before landing - especially at night. As a passenger I can't see anything.
| A visitor from Spain posted Sat July 14, 2007:|
I think it is the best cockpit photo I've ever seen.
I like the clean and beautiful cockpit!!!
I really think it's great.
| A visitor from Finland posted Fri July 13, 2007:|
Wow! This must be one of the best pictures in here!
| A visitor from - posted Fri July 13, 2007:|
Wow talk about keeping your cool during situations like this, great snag.
| A visitor from Malta posted Fri July 13, 2007:|
Wow what a great bank angle
| A visitor from - posted Thu May 10, 2007:|
| A visitor from Germany posted Mon April 16, 2007:|
Fantastic! It seems the right captain is trained by the left captain.
| A visitor from United States posted Sun March 18, 2007:|
This photo aspires to what all great photos do. Invite the wiewer the vicarious priviledge of experiencing the actual moment with its' subject.
| A visitor from United States posted Fri March 16, 2007:|
It is impressive to see the great mass of an aircraft laying over into a turn- and two gentlemen are in charge- making it happen- cool as can be.
| A visitor from Portugal posted Sun February 11, 2007:|
Simply beautifull! i'ts not easy land here in madeira and take this photo too ;D
| A visitor from India posted Tue February 6, 2007:|
Was never sure that a mighty 737 could make a near 30 degree bank. Two Captains and still such a hasty bank to catch the glideslope.
| A visitor from United States posted Mon January 29, 2007:|
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun January 14, 2007:|
Wow this is fantastic its good to see a plane of this size being pushed a little bit

Looks very grat
| A visitor from Portugal posted Sat November 25, 2006:|
Great Pic. The detail of the photo is Amazing. I think it´s true that you need a special licence to land in Madeira.
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri November 24, 2006:|
I loved this picture so much defo the best one for me -i have heard of this landing and would like to know if its true that pilots to do the FNC landing need a special sort of license-read that in a fhm magazine a while ago -wonderful picture by the way
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri November 24, 2006:|
I actually live in this beautiful island (Madeira Island)-make this trip about twice a year and it never ceases to amaze me this turn into Funchal Airport-best about it all is that this diagonal approach usually takes a good 5-10 minutes-lovely picture !!!
| A visitor from Bolivia posted Fri October 27, 2006:|
What a pic!!! thats whay its the best job on the world!
| A visitor from United States posted Thu October 26, 2006:|
Very nice. The diagonal approach works great. Good job Patrick!

Just an awesome picture.. pilots head is even tilted to try and keep things in a more vertical perspective..

| A visitor from Greece posted Thu October 5, 2006:|
PERFECT ANGLE AND PHOTO!!
| A visitor from Singapore posted Thu October 5, 2006:|
Amazing shot ... two captains .. tough approach ... a slight positive on the VSI .. and ofcourse the bank angle seems to be about 35 degrees ... actual IAS of 142 is perfectly acceptable ... as he is still turning ! ... cheerios !
| A visitor from United States posted Sat September 30, 2006:|
This is a fantasic shot.and an amazing angle!
| A visitor from United States posted Tue August 29, 2006:|
Wow, that's a Jaw Dropper! I like the VSI: for a 30 degree bank ~100 ft/sec takes some serious skill in a 737, I'm sure. BTW, the actual IAS is 142 kts, not the 135 on the airspeed hold setting.
| A visitor from United States posted Tue August 15, 2006:|
This picture gives a great detail of what pilots see as they turn the aircraft.
| A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue August 8, 2006:|
Great, the cam was horizontal while the picture was taken, so you can see even better how far the plane is banking.

Great photo, captures that exciting moment during an unusual and unique landing. just being there, inside the airplane, we can really fell the adrenaline of landing in madeira airport.
| A visitor from Poland posted Sat June 24, 2006:|
Owsome! Flaps 30, 135 IAS and bank about 30 degrees. That's what I call flying!

Unbelievable. what fantastic work do these men do, to take conrtoll of such a hugh bird & be in controll themselves. my children will just marvel at this, when they get home from school. thanks to the photogragher for sharing a glimpse of something rarely seen with so many and thankyou to the skill of these men.

Wonderful job from the pilots, they make it look so easy. lovely angle
| A visitor from Canada posted Sat February 11, 2006:|
Like the rare cockpit action shot!
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon February 6, 2006:|
Incredible awe inspriring shot. They're at quite an acute angle and it shows with the safety belts 'digging in'. You can tell these guys are true pros as their necks are bone dry! Mine would be a small river at this point!
| A visitor from Canada posted Thu February 2, 2006:|
Great shot! flaps almost fully extended as well as gear down and locked. imagine what this would look like from the ground..that toio would have been a greta shot!
| A visitor from United States posted Tue January 31, 2006:|
Doesn't get any better, unless I'm flying !
| A visitor from United States posted Mon January 30, 2006:|
How focus the pilots are
| A visitor from Belgium posted Fri January 27, 2006:|
| A visitor from Saudi Arabia posted Wed January 18, 2006:|
That was an amazing shot, i like how the photographer shows the angle and how there is so much going on and you can clearly see that the pilot is looking at the approach charts while he is pushing the throttles forward to try and maintane 135Knots and the first officer looks like he is trying to help (in a way).
| A visitor from United States posted Sat December 17, 2005:|
I have seen many photos from the ground looking up. Its great to see one from the pilots point of view!
| A visitor from United States posted Fri December 16, 2005:|
This is a really neat shot. I always wondered what the cockpit view looked like in one of those turns. NEEEAATT@
| A visitor from Canada posted Fri December 9, 2005:|
Very nice picture,, VERY SPECTACULAR TO LOOK AT..You have to be a pro to land such airplane Just SUPER Leena Louiseville Quebec Canada

| A visitor from Czech Republic posted Mon December 5, 2005:|
Nice detail, sharp, light conditions difficult but well handled, nice composition that gives a good iùpresson of the situation. Chique.
| A visitor from Mexico posted Mon November 28, 2005:|
What a shot!xD
| A visitor from United States posted Sun November 27, 2005:|
Oh Boy! The pilot looks like reading a textbook(manual) "How to Landing". I can hear what he saying "I want a textbook landing!"
| A visitor from United States posted Sat November 26, 2005:|
This is really great, an inside view of (almost) what the Pilot sees. I'd like to know what announcement, if any, the pilot made before this. How was the G-load?
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon November 14, 2005:|
I like the way it banking to the right and how clear it is you can see every thing so clearly unlike ordinary photographs
| A visitor from Spain posted Thu November 10, 2005:|
Nice pic = good shoter
| A visitor from United States posted Thu November 10, 2005:|
I love cockpit shots like this! Very clear! Great job,Pat!
| A visitor from United States posted Mon November 7, 2005:|
As you say, the more detail the better. the instrument panel is so detailed as to be fascinating. and the view of the gound would make the location identifiable.
| A visitor from Poland posted Sun November 6, 2005:|
Excellent job man!
| A visitor from Sweden posted Sun October 30, 2005:|
Exelent picture " fun to see a real pilot in work
| A visitor from Brazil posted Fri October 28, 2005:|
It is extremely exciting this point of view of a plane!
| A visitor from Portugal posted Thu October 27, 2005:|
This one is amazing check out the unusual bank for an airliner, more than 30 degrees. This approach is one of the most difficult in the world due to the severe turbulence and windshear!
| A visitor from Serbia And Montenegro posted Fri October 14, 2005:|
Awesome photo! It's very rare to see that kind of turn as well as two captains on the deck (note the shoulder of F/O)
| A visitor from India posted Wed October 12, 2005:|
Hats off to the captain for making such a difficult approach possible!
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed October 12, 2005:|
Interesting to see pilots eye view - I've been to Madeira and remember just how "last minute" the levelling off was - I thought the wing tip would be the first thing down! Would just like to have seen the runway in the distance though.
| A visitor from Australia posted Fri September 30, 2005:|
Very spectatular for an Airliner,usually only rate 2 is steep.

Amazing skill of the photographer. Deserves a 5 star vote. Taking a photo like that is not easy. Congrats to Patrick Lutz!
| A visitor from Portugal posted Sat September 10, 2005:|
5 stars! Excellent photo, excellent timing and a very well located airport! Congratulations!
| A visitor from Portugal posted Fri September 9, 2005:|
A great photo. No douts about that. Great skill of the photographer for taking it in that momment.
| A visitor from Australia posted Fri September 9, 2005:|
A great different photo - like to see more taken from flight deck.
| A visitor from Portugal posted Thu September 8, 2005:|
There's no aproach to an airport in Europe like in Funchal - Madeira - Portugal...
| A visitor from France posted Mon September 5, 2005:|
Come on, let's fly!
| A visitor from Venezuela posted Sun September 4, 2005:|
It was taken at last moment of landing ,it´s mean that was very short of height and was very brave of photographer and pilots to do that
| A visitor from Sweden posted Wed August 31, 2005:|
Great flightdeck shot. I just came home after a visit to Madeira and knows what this approach feels like! :)
| A visitor from Portugal posted Mon August 29, 2005:|
