Superb picture of a superb aircraft. Great timing with the light and dark cloud behind, which is a metaphor for Concorde's out of service date looming behind it :-(
| A visitor from - posted Sun April 3, 2016:|
The photos deserves 5 stars from me because of the following: It's "Pin-sharp" and in superb focus! The angle of view is a little more straight on than a 45 degree view. The direct low angle yellow tinted sun light lights up the underside and landing gear just right, especially against the contrasting neutral grey of the background clouds. The photo has captured the low pressure condensing white water vapour forming above the wing beautifully. We can see the crew, and it's Concorde! :)
What could be better?!
| A visitor from - posted Sat September 20, 2014:|
Highly dynamic shot! Crisp, sharp, and the angle of the aircraft is classic. Love the condensation off the wings, definitely unique.
| A visitor from Canada posted Fri August 8, 2014:|
Contrast of machine against a perfect almost neutral color background // crispness of definition of aircraft components // moisture bleed off leading edge of wing.

Dear sir. This is the best capture I have ever seen of the most beautiful aircraft that has ever graced our skies.

What a great photo : Sunlight, Aircraft, Viewangle... everything take part to do this picture beautiful!

The best photo of a greatest icon in aerospacial engineering and civil aviation... There is no plane that has such beauty and charisma as the Concorde
| A visitor from Denmark posted Fri March 16, 2012:|
An airliner that wanted to be a fighter jet...concorde was the result ;-)

Real lightning... looks like she's smokin :D
| A visitor from United States posted Sun March 4, 2012:|
Unfathomable that such a marvel is no more. Young kids of today will never experience the sight and sound of such a beauty. Yes there maybe new and better SST, however I doubt that the beauty & grace with which Concorde flew may not be matched forever. A true loss for generations to come. Thanks for capturing & etching her in perfect pose!

I wish if this aircraft is back to life again
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu July 22, 2010:|
To me it shows what Concorde was,the power and grace of the aeroplane is there but above all how beautiful she was
| A visitor from United States posted Tue July 6, 2010:|
Great looking photo of one of the most awesome aircrafts ever made. Lighting is very interesting and shows off the aircraft in a most unique way. Hats off to aviation engineers and photographers!
| A visitor from - posted Thu June 10, 2010:|
The lighting,the sharpness,the effect of moisture above the wings - everything combines to make a superb photograph!
| A visitor from Australia posted Sat March 20, 2010:|

RIP Lady Concorde. One of my only regrets in life is that I never got to experience your grace first hand.

Concorde was one of the most beautiful planes ever created; its beauty is captured so well in this photo. We will never see this shape in the skies again.
| A visitor from Norway posted Fri May 16, 2008:|
It just shows the immense beauty, grace and magnificient lines of this machine with a sharpness and not least lightening close to perfect in my upinion!

Great photo Great plane thats all i can say
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon April 7, 2008:|
A classic shot of the golden eagle of the skies.every brit should burst with pride on viewing such a wonderful "bird".
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed March 19, 2008:|
Excellent photo! Sundown for the Concorde: we will never see her flying again, only on the ground in museums.

I watched you fly over daily, just minutes from takeoff. Your unique exhaust note anounced your presence, causing all to look up. Your underside looked pure and beatiful against the deep blue sky. I and indeed many loved you, and shall miss you always.
| A visitor from South Africa posted Fri January 4, 2008:|
Without guestion the best photograph ever taken of Cocorde. Chris
| A visitor from United States posted Tue December 4, 2007:|
This photo portrays the elegance and sheer power of an aircraft of advanced design that was conceived long before the "digital age". From this angle it resembles a fixed-wing manta ray. This is also the best angle to observe it's overall uniqueness.

What a beautifully graceful plane this is
its a shame that it will never grace the skys again
| A visitor from Germany posted Fri October 12, 2007:|
Impressive. This is one of the most elegant and beautiful lightened Concorde shots that I have ever seen and deserves nothing less than 5 stars! Too bad this bird will never fly again.
| A visitor from United States posted Thu October 11, 2007:|
What a way to catch it in it's final year of use!
| A visitor from Germany posted Thu September 27, 2007:|
Very impressive ! nice shot !
| A visitor from France posted Mon September 3, 2007:|
I think it must be the lighting, the way sun shines on the surfaces. Also the angle of the aircraft. Magnificent
| A visitor from Bangladesh posted Sun August 12, 2007:|
I think this is probably the closest shot of the concorde landing.This pic DEFINITELY deserves 5 stars.Marvellous shot.Keep it up!!!
| A visitor from France posted Tue July 31, 2007:|
It's a fine, precise, very detailed photo and... so impressive view. Wonderful !!
That's really a dream picture of the most beautiful civil aircraft in the world !!
Just that... Everything is perfect. Mr Rutten is a master of photography.
I really would like to make shots like this.

Nothing wrong with that weather, it just provides good contrast.
| A visitor from Austria posted Wed June 20, 2007:|
Excellent photo! It is almost like a painting; the colours are dream like, indeed almost imaginary. What an excellent chance to take this photo in this beautiful sunlight. And what a beautiful aircraft it was: one of a kind!
| A visitor from Mauritius posted Sun June 10, 2007:|
The picture makes me wonder if this is real or someone's imagination. The spectacular shape of the aircraft, seeing the landing gear, the wing span and the super engines so clearly makes me wild. It confirms my theory that, the concorde is a plane that was made ahead of its time. The majesty of the skies, I love it more and more. Best picture Harm!!!

I have been looking for a decent photo for a very long time and nothing surpasses this one. Brings back many memories of my flight on G-BOAD from Singapore to London October 1979. A grateful grandad :-)

One of the finest photographs I have ever seen.
| A visitor from Austria posted Wed July 26, 2006:|
I have never seen Concorde “alive & kicking”; but looking at this photo I can imagine what it must have been like; what a beautiful airplane! Majestic, impressive, huge but still elegant, the Queen of the skies. And this great photo shows its beauty even more appropriate: what a great setting to see one of the last flights of the Concorde at sundown! Thank you, Harm Rutten, for this wonderful tribute to such a wonderful airplane!
| A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun July 23, 2006:|
Exceptional clarity, you can see what the pilot had for breakfast. because of the way the light strikes the aircraft, it gives an unusual tint to the picture to make it unique.
| A visitor from United States posted Sat July 22, 2006:|
This photo is the bomb!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Original and Ultimate in supersonic commercial air transport. Every angle of the Concorde screams blazing speed. This angle of her epitomize her graceful lines. You Go, Girl!...and Thanks, Harm, for sharing a sublime picture here.
| A visitor from United States posted Sat June 3, 2006:|
The picture is shot at a particularly appealing angle, and the color of the light on the fusilage is stunning.

| A visitor from United States posted Wed May 3, 2006:|
I love the angle of this shot. The fact that it is taken against a clear background brings the focus of the viewer into the plane instead of the background. The angle almost gives the viewer the feeling of actually being there to take off - a feeling of adventure.

This will be my first postcard photo from A. Net. This is art, this photo celebrates the most amazing flying machine so far created by man kind. I hope that the gentleman who snaped this piece of art, dedicates his contribution to the airplane so many of us love and miss. God bless all of you who put so much into keeping all airplanes alive through such beautiful photography. Thank you all of you. Take care Bros. MCY

This great photo shows the beauty of the Concorde: the wing span, the landing gear and the unique overall design. You can even see the pilots in the cockpit! Great shot, Harm!
| A visitor from China posted Sun November 20, 2005:|
Taken at good angle and sharpness/ clarity. Revealing great details, including landing gears, intakes and air craft numbers. Finally the haze above the wings made this picture perfect.
| A visitor from Australia posted Mon October 24, 2005:|
