And ROTATE! Wonderful photo. Nice and centered.

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 12, 2007:
This is one of the best 747 frontal shots I've seen. Looks like he used almost all of 24-L too!

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 26, 2007:
Should be proud Mike! That's just a great shot!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon February 19, 2007:
This shot shows the grace and elegance of a 747 opened up to full size. lovely being front lit, a truly excellent shot.

Such a very good aircraft photograph

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 8, 2006:
This picture is so hot that words are hard to find in order to describe "why" its so hot !

A visitor from India posted Mon May 29, 2006:
Nice photo and nice angle. Also showing two more air craft which may be waiting for ground clearance.

A visitor from Canada posted Tue March 28, 2006:
This is one sweet photo. It is just taken at the right time and the lighting is just perfect. It shows the sheer size of this aircraft and nice way it's slowly lifting off.

Awesome pic...!!!!!!!

A visitor from Australia posted Fri March 24, 2006:
Excellent shot, it would have taken some effort to set it up and get it right.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat March 4, 2006:
Brings a tear to my eye...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri February 10, 2006:
Five star shot, but this occupant of pedant's corner would like to point out that LHR isn't "Heathrow International Airport", it's simply "Heathrow Airport" - while even the smallest US airport (Columbus, Charleston SC et al) bost the word "international" in their names, it's not a British tradition and none of our airports are "international". I guess given that we're such a small country, it's assumed.

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 8, 2006:
At least it looks like she is flying...uhm...she flyes! Wow ! Physics at works!!!

A visitor from United States posted Sun January 22, 2006:

Awesome picture Michael, I love it 5 stars no doubt. Plus u caught another two planes in the same picture, GREAT!!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun October 30, 2005:
This is what planes were built for. in a strange way, i see all planes as living creaturs, they are majestic and strangely graceful. great pic

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri October 21, 2005:
One of the most important planes in aviation history connecting probably the 2 most important airports in the world.

A visitor from Uruguay posted Thu October 20, 2005:
Great shot!, I love the 747, really an awesome aircraft!

A visitor from Germany posted Thu October 20, 2005:
Just an excellent shot...

A visitor from Australia posted Tue October 18, 2005:
The composition and clarity of the shot are simply superb. It captures the majesty of the jumbo and the excitement of flight... I've been in awe of this aircraft since I first flew on it in 1975. Thanks for this.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon October 17, 2005:
That is quality. Put simply, I'm jealous. Five starts can only mean it excels in every aspect - no need to comment further.

A visitor from Mexico posted Mon October 17, 2005:
The best photo I´ve ever seen, beautiful 747. Congratulations Mike!!

A visitor from Greece posted Sun October 16, 2005:
Well Done!! This picture just made my day! I like the way the tale looks from this angle. B747 is one of the most beautiful things the man has ever created/built. So beautiful and at the same so vigorous!

A visitor from Italy posted Sun October 16, 2005:
The colors and the majesty of the 747
