The danger sign combined with the height of the aircraft are what make this shot great for me.

What a superb shot - the way the people dont seem that suprised and the "hanging in the air" nature of the Airbus all conspire to make a very surreal scene.

I'd like to build a house on this spot! A dream location come true for the jetliner enthusiast! How do I get there? Is camping in tents allowed?

It looks as though you could jump up and grab the tire! Not recommended of course!

I want to go this island to witness it for myself. It would be interesting to know what the text is on the "Danger" sign on the right side of the photo.

Does the main landing gear isn't full foward or this is because of an angle of view?

It is the proximity and the contrast. It is the opportunity to get so close to these aircraft as they come in here. Then it is the contrast of something that should be safely high in the air, here so close to the ground, and at a public place where people are walking around.

It`s an interesting photo. How loud must it be, when a plane is flying near over the bottom?

Smashing! Earth, sea and air made it complete, along with the amazing A340! There's a notice written DANGER at the bottom right. Of course it's dangerous: you might fall in love with this picture!
