Sometimes the timing of a shot is just on your side. This moment captures that perfectly, sat in the helicopter waiting for the 6am curfew to be lifted so we could get in the air, EK412 was advised by ATC not to land before 6.00 and thanks to some amazing flying by our pilot we got this shot at 6.01am. Cleared to land 34L EK412 (Nikon D3)

5 Stars for the back-story alone! Photographer remarks can make you feel like you were there! Nicely done.

AMAZING! Coincidentally, I live in Brisbane and for the first time ever, I was in the suburb of Shorncliffe this week when I saw an EK A380 take off over Moreton Bay, bound for Auckland. What a fantastic aircraft, so majestic. You must be SO thrilled with the photo you published on here. It's a real winner. You deserve the 5 stars I awarded you.

The aircraft seemms to be suspended in the air, eager to be the first to land.
