Many people gather at La Candela Restaurant and the vicinities of the airport to see this big bird land on the weekends, but nobody was ready for what happened this time. What a show.

Does it turns clockwise or counterclockwise? It depends on the point of wiew...Anyway, now it gets visible why we should always stay well behind those heavy's on final...

A brilliant capture. I thought though, that winglets were designed to avoid wing-tip vortices?

Brilliant picture there, really caught the vortices off the wings and the wake turbulence effect on the cloud! =)

Also winglets are there to reduce whats called induced drag (the effect caused by two different pressures above and beneath the wing) and cannot totally wipe out the vortices created

This photo shows the great turbulence a large aircraft can cause because of the weather in the area. something you wouldn't see on a clear day..........but it's still there!
