Is turning to line up in IGS approach on runway 13. You may be interested to find the approach lighting system on top of the orange building in the front. As I used 50 mm lens for this shot, judging from the size of 747 (70.7 m long), it will be easy to understand how low this altitude is. I really respect the pilot who had brave enough to make a tight turn in such a low altitude with caring 100 tons of cargo. I visited there every other month in 1997/1998, which truly leads me to the aviation photography
