"Are you looking at me 'cos I'm looking at you and I've got right of way!" A one in a million shot for me, which left me estatic. I saw the 2 SQ B747s being held to allow the CX A330 to pass, and decided to try a photo. I didn't realise that the two sets of pilots would be having a staring match.

What really caught my attention about this shot is the stare down between the CP and the SA pilots. And who's in the audience? SA's twin sister. Totally awesome! Normally, the bigger guys get the pass but not in this case; even they have to wait their turn. You also managed to catch the noses just perfectly - looks as if the B747 is kissing the A330 on the right cheek! Great shot!

There is something about this shot that demonstrates the huge size of the 747's. And the red line and position of the A330 is perfect. Great composition. Well done.

European engineering vs. american engineering..
Or: SQ B744 pilots: Oh my, that's the 99th A330-300 ever built, let the oldies pass first!

Shows the side of aviation we sometimes forget, that is these are vehicles with people in them, all trying to get to a certain place at the same time, but to catch it on camera is awesome! BTW whoever reaches the intersection first gets through: I saw a BA 777 hold for a gulfstream at AUH

I wouldn't be staring at others on the taxiway while having my wheels tilted at that angle with an A330...the staring game might take long enough for the plane to wander off to the grass!!

Staring contest: SQ vs. CX, nice! However, I really feel that the CX A330 should've given way to the two SQ 747s, since it is their home base!

This is an all-time great. There is something about the graciously of the 747 from the front that no other one has. The AN-124/225 come close (to my eye).
