I suppose I could get a photo like this at ORD. Then I would be led into a police car in handcuffs.

Really, an awesome photo. Incredible.

You must have some kind of airport access. Not everyone can get a shot like this and be outside of a jail cell.
Great picture.

Nice angle, it gives a unique perspective of the landing. Did the A345's wingtip zoomed over your head? It seemed so close to the runway where you took the shot.
