Remark Photographer
F-WWDD (cn 004) This is what happens when you get caught in the middle of a dust and grass storm kicked up by the A380 as it rotated and turned sharply at the start of its 2008 display.

Awesome :))

I was and was recording this take off. You catch it just in the right time! Congrats.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri November 25, 2011:
Great, unique capture.

But can someone explain what the difference is between the top and bottom halfs of the rudder?
In other photos (i.e. #2018145) you can see that the top half of the rudder moves, while the bottom is fixed. In this picture it's the other way around. What's the difference?

What a sharp turn out! Awesome Picture! :D

I was there! It was awesome... That plane is huge and loudddd! It is so huge I thougt it was going to land on the grass between the spectators and the runway, cos it seemed so close... but it was just the sheer size that made me think it.

A visitor from Germany posted Thu June 10, 2010:

Look at that rudder deflection--looks like it's about to snap off at anytime....

A visitor from South Africa posted Thu June 10, 2010:
Stick and Rudder? In an airbus? I think not... but awesome photo!

A visitor from - posted Wed March 17, 2010:
Truly a great photographic and aircraft example. What a powerful machine!

A visitor from Italy posted Thu December 24, 2009:
Looks like an old 'nam photograph!! And its incredible that the engines are keeping it up without a stall, a miracle at this point.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat December 12, 2009:
A380 in a tactical-evacuation-operation!! Just amazing!!

A visitor from - posted Sun May 10, 2009:
OH MY GOD full rudder this is almost the best pic on a.liners !

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 16, 2008:
Wow, full rudder on take off? That's not something you see everyday.

A visitor from Portugal posted Sun September 14, 2008:
Thrust at its high level!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon August 18, 2008:
All I can say is wow! It truly captures pure power this shot. I would love to be sitting in the cabin at this moment it would beat any rollercoaster! The grass being thrown up adds a great touch also.

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 14, 2008:
Can't believe the screeners missed another rejection on this! Great shot, I give it 5 stars!

A visitor from Germany posted Thu August 14, 2008:
Respect to your autofocus...

A visitor from Germany posted Thu August 14, 2008:
Mr La Forge: Bring us out!

A visitor from France posted Thu August 14, 2008:
Oh .. Rejection reason ? "dust spots". No just kidding, very nice and powerful. Congrats.
