Wonderful pic :)

A visitor from - posted Mon December 5, 2011:
Wow. Amazing. Like the previous person said, why are there 5 contrails?
Ones from the Aux power unit?
But its coming from somewhere below the plane

A visitor from Canada posted Mon December 5, 2011:
Nice pic

A visitor from China posted Fri April 29, 2011:

Absolutely brilliant angle of this plane, i work for Airbus and everytime i see this it makes me feel proud!

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri June 26, 2009:
OMG :O what a perfect sight! Excellent shot, excellent aircraft, excellent moment. Kudos Mr. Hellmann

A visitor from - posted Fri June 26, 2009:
Or maybe the contrail is from someone taking a shower in first class! 5* beautiful capture

A visitor from Germany posted Fri June 26, 2009:
Hey there is an other small contrail behind the aircraft. Probably somebody is useing the toilet, the water is dumped. Very rare, interesting! 5* from me!

A visitor from - posted Fri June 26, 2009:
Definitely the best shot of EK's A380.. Love it!!

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 26, 2009:
Explanation unneeded

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 26, 2009:
Very special shot, I salute. Note the reflection of engines on the wing! Just like other photos taken from few meters, unbeliavable.

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 26, 2009:
WOW = What O'some Widebody
Now we know the A380 at full speed

A visitor from Poland posted Fri June 26, 2009:
I can only say WOW!! Fantastic shot

A visitor from Spain posted Fri June 26, 2009:
I love A380; how do you take photos from the earth?

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 26, 2009:
Left of #3 can be seen the reflection of the clouds and the blue sky. Are the clouds below providing the needed illumination?

A visitor from - posted Fri June 26, 2009:
This is one of the best pictures on A.net. Airbus A380 is the king of the skies, no questions asked.

A visitor from Germany posted Fri June 26, 2009:
Nice picture!!! Flight Sim X!?

A visitor from Germany posted Fri June 26, 2009:
Awesome photo!
I love the A380 =)
btw: had this plane a tailstrike or is that just dirt at the end of the fuselage?

A visitor from Malaysia posted Fri June 26, 2009:
Stunning, A380 is huge and the contrails make the plane as if it speeds like a rocket...

A visitor from Sri Lanka posted Fri June 26, 2009:

A visitor from Spain posted Thu June 25, 2009:
Eye catching shot! As the NZ mate told, it's not easy to do this... my admiration! And, of course, my 5* vote!!

A visitor from - posted Thu June 25, 2009:
Unique view of mighty A 380 .
King of Skies

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 25, 2009:
So, I'm a nerd and saw this when it had only 500 hits. Now, I'll chime in. Great shot. Nothing like capturing a heavy just above you, with a contrail. This will indeed be a classic shot.

A visitor from - posted Thu June 25, 2009:
Amazing shot!The contrast is phenomenal!! Wish I could take something like this!! The aircraft seems pretty dirty though!Time for a nice scrub!!

A visitor from - posted Thu June 25, 2009:
Looks very surreal. I love the lighting. 5 stars!

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu June 25, 2009:
I love Emirates! *-*

A visitor from Mexico posted Thu June 25, 2009:
Astonishing, great contrast, nice details, the background make the plane look "shine"

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 25, 2009:
Never knew they put logos on the bottom of the plane Great shot

A visitor from France posted Thu June 25, 2009:
Wow, are you spotting with a telescope? Astonishing picture, one of the best of the A380 in my view. I find that the bit of dirty marks under the fuselage accentuates the mighty flying beast sight!

A visitor from Germany posted Thu June 25, 2009:
10 Stars. Maybe the best Photo of the giant on the net.

A visitor from New Zealand posted Thu June 25, 2009:
Knowing how difficult it is to take a decent A2A shot I can only congratulate you for this immaculate photo. Very well done Derek! -Thierry

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Thu June 25, 2009:
What an amazing capture by a brilliant photographer! Thank you, Derek, for sharing it. This must simply become an A.net classic!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu June 25, 2009:
Erm.... wow!! That's awesome.

A visitor from Germany posted Thu June 25, 2009:
Absolutely stunning Derek, well done! And if you take a closer look then you recognize a fifth contrail coming from one of the aircraft

A visitor from - posted Thu June 25, 2009:
Perfect photo!!!!! the details, everything!!!!!!!

A visitor from Sweden posted Thu June 25, 2009:
Feeling of speed!

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 25, 2009:
Perfect, absolutely stunning!

A visitor from United Arab Emirates posted Thu June 25, 2009:

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 25, 2009:
What makes this a great shot is the contrast of the plane against the dark sky. It has the look of being hit with a spot light from below, plus the clarity is superb.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu June 25, 2009:
Truly. When I saw this picture, The thing I tought was: Oh My God. Sir, this is one of the greatest pics. You can win prices with this one right here!
Greetings from Holland!
