Remark Photographer
EI-CGO (cn 45924/392) Watch out, big smoking bird is coming ! Look at the black smoke of the engine exhaust that this DC8 is leaving behind him. I saw how much cargo were loading (the plane was really fully loaded), I knew that he would need the whole runway to have enough speed to be able to rotate and take off. So I went to the end of the runway, where I waited to make a good picture of the take off of this nice oldie. It was really worth it that I had to wait, isn't it ? :-)
