I like the way the Dash 8's fuselage looks almost like it is suspended in mid air in a close up like this. Just about to enter Runway 24L.

You are right. It looks like the fuselage is going to fall out of the air and crash. A great shot. But I can never find ways to get good shots like this one; close up.

Great shot and nice lightning. Looks really strange with only the nose-gear visible!

Very interesting angle, Paul! :-) I never think Dash 8 could be that funny!

Excellent Paul. How did you capture this. The airplane appears to be 'hanging' in the air with the nose wheel touching the ground. The 'heat swirls' off the engines giving the sense of 'motion', along with the circular prop imprints. The sight of the crew members revealing 'activity'. The sharpness of the aircraft and the fading background with the heat heat swirls in the upper half of the picture. Terrific, in my view. Thank you

The Dash 8 is a really wonderful plane. I always wanted to fly in one, and have never been able to. Such a shame they do not operate in Malaysia. :(

Great shot! Especially of the one-wheel illusion. ;)

I love the pictures of the Dash 8, in which it is looking as if she is hanging in the air! And this one is even in such nice light conditions!!!

One of the best head on shots of a Q300 I have ever seen. I was at Bombardier-Wichita for six years and saw the first Q400 on a daily basis.

Poor photo in my opinion. The photo gives a false perception of the aircraft.

The 'false perception' in this photo makes it a great shot. There aren't many photo's of the Q300 like this one. Just great!

Poor Photo???? I totally disagree. Great photos frequently cause us to examine and study what we are looking at. This photo challenges our understanding of aircraft design, and leads us to conclude that this is in fact a UNICYCLE, not an airplane!! GREAT Photo... thank you for shooting it! M.L.

I flew on these every fortnight not that long ago, and if I'd seen this I would have found it disconcerting to say the least! It just looks wrong!

It's one of the first things I noticed - and loved - about the Dash-8 from when they first started operating in Australia. Wonderful capture of a wonderful bird! Thanks for a good smile.
