Remark Photographer
G-BRYU (cn 458) 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.

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.

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 25, 2011:
Heh heh, funny; it has no pair of wheels on the back. besides that it is pretty darn good

A visitor from - posted Sat July 16, 2011:
I used to think exactly the same thing about the Fokker Friendship :)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun May 8, 2011:
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!

A visitor from - posted Wed November 3, 2010:
The air of suspension is great!

A visitor from Sweden posted Sun July 11, 2010:
What a fat Dash-8

A visitor from - posted Mon May 10, 2010:
Wow 5*! This is one of my favorite planes to fly on! I work with them everyday and have never thought of taking a picture like this! Great angle!!

A visitor from Brazil posted Fri May 7, 2010:
The Picture is perfect and unique! It

A visitor from - posted Tue May 4, 2010:
Quality photo, makes the dash 8 look like its floating

A visitor from Norway posted Sun April 25, 2010:
It makes me wonder where the wheels is... ;)

A visitor from - posted Fri April 23, 2010:
Cool! :)
Russian An-24/26/30/32 can make this "trick" too ;)

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Mon February 8, 2010:
Great catch!

A visitor from - posted Sun October 4, 2009:
Great picture

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun October 4, 2009:
Its cool but one thing the co pilot is not wering sun glasses !

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 18, 2009:
I don't get it. Someone explain. haha, I've been looking at it for 5 mins. and still dont get it.....

A visitor from Mauritius posted Mon September 7, 2009:
This is not a poor photo. Instead it shows the creativity of the photographer. This photo deserves 5 Stars. Thanks for sharing Paul.


A visitor from United Arab Emirates posted Wed September 2, 2009:
Fantastic - Very well framed creating an unusual sensory image. Well captured.

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 26, 2009:
This shot deserves 10 stars. 'nuff said.


A visitor from United States posted Fri June 26, 2009:
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.

A visitor from Portugal posted Mon February 23, 2009:
Fantastic looks like it's about to fall

A visitor from - posted Mon February 23, 2009:
LOL looks like the plane is doing a wheeli

A visitor from United States posted Sat February 7, 2009:
Look at those heat waves

A visitor from United States posted Fri January 2, 2009:
I was sooo confused and then..... lightbulb the wheels are on the wings lol!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon August 18, 2008:
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!

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 14, 2008:
Superb, you had less than a second to make that "perfect" shot, and you made it. very nice job

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 25, 2008:
Amazing shot! Almost look like the aircraft is only using one wheel.

A visitor from - posted Tue May 13, 2008:
Great Shot!!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun April 20, 2008:
Poor photo in my opinion. The photo gives a false perception of the aircraft.

A visitor from Germany posted Sat April 5, 2008:
You sure got the right moment for shooting! 5* Great!

A visitor from - posted Tue October 30, 2007:
Very good photo

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 17, 2007:
From that angel, it looks like its levatating for it not to avoid a tail slide

A visitor from United States posted Fri July 20, 2007:
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.

A visitor from United States posted Fri July 6, 2007:
I thought the captain was David Blaine.... Who else can create this optical illusion?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun July 1, 2007:
One of the most interesting motives I have seen in a long time.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat May 19, 2007:
Superb motive!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed February 14, 2007:
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!!!

A visitor from Australia posted Mon October 16, 2006:
Amazing shot and very creative!

A visitor from Thailand posted Thu July 27, 2006:
Finally, latest improvement model from Dash-8 has arrived. Equipped with INVISIBLE main landing gear!!! Great invent!

Great shot also :D
From Arch, TH

A visitor from Malaysia posted Fri May 19, 2006:
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. ;)

A visitor from - posted Mon February 20, 2006:
That is AMAZING!
Beautiful shot man!

A visitor from Switzerland posted Sun February 12, 2006:
Damn it Paul ;-) You stole the idea I had of taking a DHC8 on this angle! Haha, excellent shot, I really like it! Keep it up!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Cool Photo!

A visitor from United States posted Mon January 30, 2006:
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

A visitor from Canada posted Fri January 20, 2006:
Very interesting angle, Paul! :-) I never think Dash 8 could be that funny!


A visitor from United States posted Tue January 17, 2006:
The dash 8 seems to be rolling on one one leg. Wheres the other :o) Great pic

A visitor from Mexico posted Tue January 17, 2006:
It looks like it is makin´ balance with the nose gear. What a sight. T.B.

A visitor from Norway posted Tue January 17, 2006:
Great shot and nice lightning. Looks really strange with only the nose-gear visible!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun January 15, 2006:
I love this effect when photographing Dash-8's very good!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun January 15, 2006:
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.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat January 14, 2006:
Good photo Paul. from Ehren
