Aren't aircraft supposed to be at least 5mins away from each other? The 777 must be having a fair bit of turbulence!

As someone from Adelaide I know just how rare this type of photo really is, not only the 744 but two heavies is the one photo, thats unheard of. Congrats mate

Off into the Australian Skys, leaving all problems on the ground. Just amazing!

A visitor from France posted Mon January 9, 2006:
IMO a great shot ! This picture shows the beauty of a take off by the angle it has, and the position it is taken from. Really nice, the kind of shot we enjoy looking at for hours.

A visitor from United States posted Mon January 9, 2006:
Very nice angle and you captured all of the 747 which is always nice to see. And the dusk or dawn light just adds to the scene.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon January 9, 2006:

Wow! 747s and Triple sevens are my favorite aircrafts! Nice to see that QF's big bird flying on a nice background~ I will give this pic 5 stars :-)

A visitor from Canada posted Mon January 9, 2006:
I like the even lighting when this photo was taken, usually like the blue sky background but for this photo, gray is wonderful. Little runway to spare is kind of interesting. All good. hrw
