As a big 747 fan i can only enjoy such sights. Although all of them are nice, BA has by far the most beautiful livery.

Flaps down because it enables the plane to lift off quicker because they provide more lift on heavies

Talk about having your ducks in a row, or in this case Boeings. SYD is just an awesome airport.

For the person enquiring about the white line, it's to delineate the roadway that runs along the edge of the water. It hels keep the cars, trucks and other vehicles that frequent the area away from the wing area of aircraft taxiing past.

It is a great photo and it shows the different take-off flap settings, British Airways has flap 20 and MAScargo has flap 10

Gosh sam, you are the king of the 747 captures.
Five star photo this one, the three beautiful girls, waiting patiently in line. Glad there is no 'Runway Rage' with these big girls...the reusult would not be good at all! Great shot, very perfect angle and lighting. Long live Her Magesty!
