Great view on top of the hill as aircraft approaching rwy 10 pass right in front of your face, as evidenced by my wife standing under the wing. That's close!

Looks too dangerously Low. Hope the pilot does not get distracted with such nice people around ;)

Don't know if there's a perspective effect but it seems very very low limit ..

Nice job! Very crisp photo, and good detail. I'm impressed you were able to track a fast, low flying aircraft that well. I've flown into SBH, and that extremely low approach is normal there; the runway is very short and the local geography makes landing difficult.

Amazing Capture, But even more so for those that know where the actual strip is.

I would have executed a go around if I caught eye with that fine specimen standing there. :)

Only 3 meters over the street is normal in SBH, and then a nose down approach to the 500 metres short runway...you captured it really good

This shot truly evokes thoughts of the miracle of flight. Hovering above the road, cars, and woman is a machine not much larger than the automobiles but that can beat down the air with its wings and fly. And, it's going 100 mph :). Flying really is a miracle 5*****

I hope they watch for buses and trucks before doing those passes.
