Perfect exposure & composition. Great detail in both light and shadow on the plane. I like the clouds below the plane and clear sky above it.

Very nice shot - nice colours, nice angle, nice bank on the plane. There are two little things that may not be important on the photo, though it can be my screen: Tiny grain on the engines and the "UR-82060" is a little jagged. Every thing else is GOOOOOOOD ;-)

Firstly, the clarity of the shot...I don't think that it could be better focussed than it is...it illustrates the undercarriage, and engines beautifully, and I wish that I had taken it...G.C.Walker

Good to see the old eastern gal in Texas. I saw here one evening at Bush while landing on a United flight. Totally dwarfed a fedex DC-10.

How many wheels? 32?
6 engines?
What's inside? The biggest freighter ever, isn't it?
Excellent picture, and this plane is rarely used so you were lucky and manage to get it right, congratulation.

GOD! I saw it in 1989 and thought it wasn't use anymore, I was wrong, how impressive, Russians have tremendous planes.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu October 20, 2005:
It's sharp and you can read the lettering and it shows the emenceness of it

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon October 17, 2005:
Every time this antonov takes off and lands, it proofs aerodinamics does not mean style. Nose tip seems cracked down, and the whole bird just seems too ´´straight``. Congratulations for the color balance.
