The aircraft's colors and the mountain range background make this picture perfect. Can't you imagine Bush's friend onboard?

I'd say Landing, tires tend not to smoke like that on takeoff.

Beautiful shot!

Nice background that compliments the silver fuselage of the plane. In addition the tail stripes go back towards the mountains.

The smoke of the wheels and the flaps indicates that the airplane is landing.

Those sure are boxy planes.
It is landing. The tire smoke gives it away, as well as the huge amount of flap.

To the friend who was asking landing or take off, somebody had to explain him: its landing...first of all look the smoke comming from the tires accelerating from 0 to about 180 mph...on take off tires dont smoke, or a least not that much...then, look at the flap setting, they are really down, on take off its just about 15

Smoking tires is generally seen on landing, not takeoff.

Beautiful shot, great capture!

To the visitor who asked if this is a landing or taking off, this is a landing. Had this been a take off, the plane is in big trouble with burning tires!

-Landing. Would seem really weird if the tires got all smoky at the takeoff.
