Remark Photographer
ZS-OSI (cn 46098/516) A heavy shower passed through the field and a very lucky break in the clouds after it shows off the big water spray effect as this classic aircraft departs from Runway 31 (400mm shot). It was testing new cockpit equipment before heading back to Manston.

What a shot of one of the 2 finest 60s jet airliners built weather just right good crosswind reminds me of Anchorage on a good day when I hauled DC 8s and 707s out in the 70s many thanks for the memory

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue August 3, 2010:
A classic 4 engined airliner, captured the action very well and a very atmospheric overall impression

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 6, 2010:
Thanks again Fred!
That's how we looked leaving Scotland back in 63 on the way non-stop to Winnipeg and a new life!

A visitor from India posted Sun May 18, 2008:
Rare picture shot during take off giving us a chance to look this kind of fantastic views

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon April 14, 2008:
Great photo of a great aircraft, built by a great manufacturer, Douglas company.

A visitor from Norway posted Sat January 6, 2007:
Wonderful pic. Great aircraft and you can almost hear the sound. Miss flying them...

Great pic

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon July 24, 2006:
A proper plane, from noise to nacelles to nostrils! Nicely lit and the weather knew when to stop raining and allow a blast of sun in to light this lovely bird's takeoff. I can remember these things shrieking into EGCC when I was a kid and all that noise and kerosene smell just comes back when you see these things "launching". Thanks for the shot.

Just good to see the old DC-8

A visitor from United States posted Sun June 18, 2006:
Superb photo!

A visitor from Iceland posted Sun May 28, 2006:
A perfect shot of a perfect plane.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri April 28, 2006:
Well composed I thought. Lighting effects are really good. Grey darkness in background, sunshine in forground. Lots of action. Acft slewing left to compensate for crosswind. Wings at slight angle as pilot gets it crabbed correctly. Spray from acft departing runway being blown downwind. Runway lights disappearing into the spray. The angularity of the approach lights. Good photography in my opinion. From Mike in Canada

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu February 23, 2006:
As an avvid plane spotter I can really apprecieate shots liek this it just reeks od history power beauty and everything wonderful about flying

A visitor from Israel posted Sat February 18, 2006:
Superb Photo!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat February 11, 2006:
Taken from an unusual position this photo is unusal but at the same time shows the plane in a good level of detail cosidering the distance involved

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 7, 2006:
Great photo Fred, love the DC-8. He's not in a "twisted yaw" on take off. The wind is coming from his left (as evidenced by the direction the water spray is moving) and he's simply crabbing into the wind to maintain runway center line.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon February 6, 2006:
The photo captures the aircraft in a twisted yaw on take off - could possibly be the angle of the shot. or slight wind shear, pilot shouldve adjusted right trim before full rotate throttle up.

A visitor from United States posted Mon February 6, 2006:
I wish I could hear the noise..:(

I'm sorry but this is a 6 stars worth


A visitor from France posted Sun February 5, 2006:
Very nice shot! You can clearely see the DC-8's so special fuselage with the two intakes on the nose.

A visitor from Germany posted Sun February 5, 2006:
This picture deserves the best rating, marvelous.
By the way the same is true for the aircraft. Best rating ever. Its only a shame that we don't have the chance to see them here in Europe. I can almost hear the ringing in my ears from the sound of a departing DC-8.

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Sun February 5, 2006:
It's cool to see the smoke from the engine anf the spray!

I never get tired of these end of the runway shots, especially with a 4 engine beast blowing up spray. Very nice work. 5 stars.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat February 4, 2006:
Wow! Dramatic picture of this classic beauty clearly showing the strong crosswind by the spray drifting to the side. You had a bit of luck with the light but this capture was created by a skilled photographer. Well done!
