The first and only time I had the privilege to travel on board a DC-10, when I was a kid, I decided I wanted to be a pilot. To me it's the most beautiful passenger airplane ever done.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue February 25, 2014:
This photo's got perfection written all over it. A worthy tribute for sure, and flawlessly executed. An instant classic if there ever was one!

The photo turned it to look like a brand new aircraft. Great farewell shot of one of the greatest airliners of all times.

End of an era captured exquisitely.

A visitor from - posted Mon February 24, 2014:
Really nice panning shot. The background blur just says "in this moment, this machine was alive".

A visitor from Italy posted Sun February 23, 2014:
Fantastic shot for a very sad event! :-(

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 23, 2014:
So long DC-10! You'll certainly be missed. @ the previous comment about the last MD-11 flight, sadly KLM will operate their last MD-11 service on Oct. 25, 2014! :(

The picture itself is self-explanatory why it deserves a 5-stars rating

A visitor from - posted Sun February 23, 2014:
Rest easy now, gentle giant! =)

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 23, 2014:
Perfect, everything about it. Great job taking the risk with a pan shot, well done.

Great panning photo, and a historic picture.

A visitor from - posted Sun February 23, 2014:
Awesome! Sad to know that there will be no more DC-10 commercial passenger flights, but it is nice to know that some of the history will be preserved through great photography like this. Also it is refreshing to have a #1 photo that is not from that famous beach or a helicopter shot taken from the west coast.....I do like them, but it is overkill. Well done Charles!

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 23, 2014:
Does anyone know where this DC-10 went after its last revenue passenger flight? Freighter conversion, Kemble, or even an American boneyard?

A visitor from Australia posted Sun February 23, 2014:
Both upper and lower red beacons AND the first puff of main gear tyresmoke ~ sensational way of saying 'farewell' to this beautiful trijet.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun February 23, 2014:
Stunning picture, well done
A fiting picture for the end of a beautiful passenger aircraft.

A visitor from Turkey posted Sun February 23, 2014:
A great photo and a great photographer, usually if a unique event is going to happen ( such as the last landing of an airliner ) I would not risk anything that can compromise the image. 5 stars to the photographer who chose to shoot this image with this beautiful motion blur in the background. A fitting final photo for such a fine aircraft.

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun February 23, 2014:
Amazing photo!! Congratulations.

A visitor from - posted Sun February 23, 2014:
Awesome shot - although what a sad day for DC-10 passenger jets. Wonder how much longer for MD-11s.
