Nice shot. Only Flaps 10 or 20 are used for takeoff on a B747-400.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu February 25, 2010:
Flaps 25 is not certified for take-off on a 747-400...

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat October 17, 2009:
Flap 25 for take-off is close to 30 used for landing so hard to see the difference, it looks like the pilot didn`t give enough aileron into the wind though!

Very nice shot. I like this big plane.

A visitor from Germany posted Tue July 8, 2008:
Nice to see a crosswind take off instead of a crosswind landing... beautiful!

It must have been a real rush to witness that! 5*

Awesome shot!! Looks like a beast raising itself on it's side. I like the thrust - really powerful. In Montego Bay, JA we have a dust bed along the runway and to see a B747 engine go over it, it's a sight to behold! It's great!!

WOW It's the drama that pours of every pixel in this foto!

Amazing! Great angle, great aircraft, great take off!
Great Picture! 5 stars for this one

It looks like a flamingo standing on one leg.

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Sun October 15, 2006:
This is a take-off, but a little bit different to those from longer runways. The flaps configuration during the landing is much 'bigger'. :) This is a great shot!

Great example of how a crosswind takeoff should look. Excellent angle, would've love to have been there myself.

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 27, 2006:
C'mon big girl get some air under that wing and fly! I would have loved to have been there to see that. Excellent pic.

A visitor from Portugal posted Fri July 21, 2006:
5 stars for me on this one, just for two details. The angle is different from what we normally see, and because there is no heat distortion. Well done.

A visitor from Sweden posted Thu July 20, 2006:
If the B747 was landing on that part of the runway, it would have a big, big problem. Flaps are set for a short field take-off!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed July 19, 2006:
GREAT! 5 stars!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed July 19, 2006:
It doesn't look like taking off, but rather like landing, see the flaps configuration not being in take off config.

Cool to see another angle of SXM...
