Nice shot, although the impact would be better if it was cropped tighter

Now I thought that was only a problem with Cessnas. They're like stray cats that seem to multiply by the day.

5/5 for being in the right place and time. I think Boeing may be on to some new production methods. Hope it works out for them.

Do you think it isn't done in purpose that the new 747 is a 800?.. these two 400s getting together means a -800 coming out....

What airline would the lttle one be of... Perhaps a Philippino? And yeah, the lower one should have been Virgin.

They say baby's come from White Storks. So do 747SP's come from 747-400's? This sure is Singapore Airlines!

They don't really look like they're mating: Plus that's an impossible mating position! Where's the bottom 747's tailplane? lol. But anyway, expect an egg of a 747SP in a few months. lol!

Smexy photo.
