TCAS is ringing!? I am not quite sure; but, as I used 300 mm lens, I think it looks closer than real. I have no idea what the NCA pilots tried to achieve as they only departed from runway 7L to make a left turn heading for Japan which eventually encountered with China Airlines 747 departing from runway 32 (longest runway which all the heavies departed from on that day). Anyway, it was a nice opportunity for me to capture this scene with the morning orange hue.

I don't care... I don't think there is a more graceful aircraft that 747. Absolutely beautiful aircraft!

The color of the sky, the scenery, there is a totally dramatic thing about this shot. The fact that those two queens are heading to completely opposite directions, it's really inspiring...

Gotta love the orange shine on the very tip at the rear of the plane, as well as on the upper back of the "hump", and on the wings and flaps of course...
The reflection of the left wing on the body is a beautiful detail that makes this shot even more perfect to me. 5 stars.
