Great example of telescopic compression. The Cessna is plenty far away, but the use of telescopic lens compresses background with foreground causing the illusion of the 172 being right up against the heavy.

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 9, 2013:
From what I can gather from Google Earth, the Cessna is short of 06 on G and the 747 is landing long behind it. The runway isn't visible because it is at a slightly higher elevation.

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 27, 2012:
As I look at this more, I wonder if the 747 is the foreground and the 172 is behind it (relative to the photographer). Am I seeing that correctly or are my eyes tricking me?

"Caution Wake Turbulence..."

One engine of the Boeing 747 equals the size of our lil baby Cessna...

A visitor from United States posted Sun June 26, 2011:
I love watching airplanes takeoff and land, but I think this is a little close for comfort!

A visitor from Australia posted Fri February 18, 2011:
The Cessna looks way to big to be behind the 744. ??

Nice & rare shot

Amazing 5*****

A visitor from Malaysia posted Sun May 23, 2010:
When 172 was hit by a 744F, it can be considered as a bird strike.

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 11, 2010:
Its kind of scary because it looks like the 747 is going to hit the small little plane

A visitor from United States posted Sat February 27, 2010:
Lima x-ray two eight mike, hold short runway two-four for the next 12 minutes due to heavy 74 landing.
when you recieve take off clearance, caution EXTREME wake turbulence

Do you see what im seeing Captian

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri November 6, 2009:
Size matters. Nobody will ever convince me that it wouldn't. ;) If I had been in the Cessna and would see the 744 coming into my direction, I think I would ruin my pants. Pretty impressiv but scary.

Damn it! i told you i heard something to starboard!! with the cessna in motion blur and the 747 in focus,it looks as though the cessna's just proceeding on along........doh de dohh....

A visitor from United States posted Mon December 15, 2008:
I think the 172 weights about a piece of the 747's flap!

"Do you hear something that sounds like a 747?"

A visitor from Spain posted Sat February 2, 2008:
A very nice shot

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 29, 2007:
I would love to be the cessna pilot, he has the best view of that 747 landing

A visitor from Germany posted Mon August 13, 2007:
LUX is one of the busiest cargo airports and it has a lot of Cessnas and Piper... You see that daily, but perfectly captured in this case!

A visitor from Canada posted Wed June 27, 2007:
More importaintly how is the Cessna pilot gonna clean the brown spot on the seat?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri May 4, 2007:

A visitor from Luxembourg posted Fri February 10, 2006:
Well. That's normal in LUX. You are very close to the action. Everytime I fly in LUX there's a big bird landing or departing ahead

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 1, 2006:
Cool shot! I wonder what the Cessna pilots are thinking!

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 3, 2005:
