Remark Photographer
JA8081 (cn 25064/851) I've seen the Space Shuttle take-off and I've seen plenty of topless women in SXM but nothing comes close to a 747 coming directly in your direction just a few hundred feet below you! This was really amazing. It's a real air-to-air picture, no discussions please!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat February 23, 2013:
An astonishing picture - a combination of the real (a beautiful aircraft) and the unreal (its angle of ascent and the play on the eye). Great work!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat January 26, 2013:
Amazing. If you look at the runway behind it you may think it goes vertically, but looking at the signs next to the runway puts everything in perspective. Amazing shot!

I like is Amazing<3.It"s real:)

A visitor from Mauritius posted Tue August 14, 2012:
I have seen this picture a dozen of dozen of times, and I still get impressed about this picture. How long has been the shooter with the camera in his/her hand waiting for the shot? Is not only the picture: is the work (and the awaitting) behind.

A visitor from United States posted Fri July 13, 2012:
WOW! Five ☆s. HOW did you get that shot. Amazing!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat July 7, 2012:
They say that the camera doesn't lie but it sure can trick you! by using a telephoto lens, distances are foreshortened so objects look much closer than they are. This 747 must have been at least 4 miles away from the photographer. Also, although it looks like it is climbing vertically it cannot physically be at a body angle greater than about 30 degrees. Note also the panels by the runway with numbers 9 on them - these are perpendicular to the surface. But none of this takes away from the fact that it is a very arresting picture!

A visitor from - posted Wed June 20, 2012:
Hardest angle ever

A visitor from India posted Mon June 4, 2012:
We have seen many pictures of aeroplanes but this is some thing special Because of -
a. Air to Air takeoff photograpgy.
b. Picture is so well composed (Flight & the runway,Great)
c.very unsual ,very special photo too.
d.Timing is so well,even you can see wheels folding & blur background just behind the engines i.e. fuel burning etc..

A visitor from United States posted Thu February 16, 2012:
Just look at the picture. The level of detail, and the fact that it looks like the 747 is about three seconds from hitting the camera during climb.

A visitor from - posted Mon January 16, 2012:
If true, it is a test flight. Commercial flights in the angle of takeoff are smaller. For passenger comfort.

It is a great shot - how was it taken - where was the photographer - it almost makes you unsteady since it it hard to get used to a 747 coming straight up at you - again where was the photographer to get this fantastic perspective?

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 8, 2011:
Seeing a photo of the front of a 747 taken from the air, with the runway in the background is spectacular, It's certainly not an easy shot to get, and not one you see everyday.

Increible

A visitor from United States posted Wed December 8, 2010:
Incredible photo. The wingtips are actually above the fuselage! Also, I love what long lenses can do. For the skeptics: I've used Google Earth to look at a 2004 sat image of the runway and determined the amount of runway shown is 728 feet. The photographer is actually a bit above the aircraft's heading as well. I *think* there might be enough data to determine the distance to the camera, exact angles, etc. But it'd take somebody with more time than me to figure that all out.

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 3, 2010:

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 11, 2010:
Someone commented about a similar picture that this would be the last thing you saw. I'm sure that a telephoto lens changes perspective. But still, I'm sure I'd have to change shorts faster than anyone could change planes.

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 10, 2010:
The composition is great, everything is technically executed well, and the curve of the wings under the stress of the lift is almost unbelievable. Wonderful photo. Wonderful flight!

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 6, 2010:
This one's got to be one of my favorites. It's absolutely brilliant! It reminds me in the old 747 first flight forum when people were doubtful of its future. Well, now look at this magnificent beast!

A visitor from United States posted Mon April 26, 2010:

The most unique angle for a takeoff shot I've ever seen and a fabulous perspective of the westward departure from 25L at LAX just beyond the two main cross taxiways that link the north and south sides of the airport. An amazing air-to-air capture!

A visitor from Egypt posted Tue October 20, 2009:
I've calculated the angle of climbing of the 747, by assuming that the crossed taxiways are perpendicular to the runway, so the deformation of the picture is 3.1:4.3 so sin(-1) gives 45 degree !!! could it happen ?? WOW

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 19, 2009:
Can see how strong B747 is. Amasing plane. Here looks like jet fighter taking off, with such a steep angle. Well Well done. Picure is outstanding.

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 13, 2008:
For those wondering how this shot was captured...

There's a little VFR corridor along the coastline over LAX. Private planes fly through the corridor to avoid entering the class B airspace around the airport. The corridor passes over the runways allowing for shots like this. I've had a couple very similar shots, though not with the 747.

This photo suggests a "maximum" performance from the powerplants thru the airframe to the edge of the envelope. A truly unique attitude for the A/C and the photographer. Not uncommon for JAL pilots or their passengers tho.

It's a good photo because it shows the extent of the wing loading.

That's one steep ascent - and undercarriage already being retracted! Great shot - scarily close from the photographer's point of view though?

I think that this pic was shot in a routine 747 take-off, but the man behind the camera would cause envy to Salvador Dali, due to the distorted proportions and real impact of the image. Tricky and beautiful. SilvioLP

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 14, 2006:
While I love this photo for just about everything about it, it is not as amazing as some of the comments seem to suggest.

The plane is not going vertical -- it is simply a normal climb, captured with a really long lens. Consider what you are really seeing in the background. That is at least 800 feet of runway in view (thank you Google Maps and satellite view). But yet the lines seem to be very close together. This was shot with a very long lens from out over the ocean -- probably close to 1.5 to 2 miles from the lift off point. Neither the plane nor the photog were in any danger or doing anything out of the ordinary -- the camera just shows what we all take for granted -- some serious forces at work to lift this beast off the ground.

Wonderful shot!

The Queen looks angry, get outta the way!
-Doctored up or not, this is outstanding. Great timing too, the capture of the gear transition is perfect, and you gotta love the wing flex from a high gross weight take-off. This shot just exudes power!

A visitor from United States posted Thu January 26, 2006:
Awesome shot. gotta get a laugh out of all the "pax must be soiling themselves" and "me and my team of experts have determined that this is fake" comments. behold the power of a zoom lens, people!

What an amazing picture

The angle and the semi retracted undercarriage , the aircraft pointing straight at you and the runway with tire streaks - makes a stunning picture. I would give you more than five stars if could.

Great picture, in the sense that it conveys the enormous size of this great bird also it gives a perception of motion what with the landing gear being retracted.

It appears to be a test flight, minimum fuel and take off at max power. It's not even at the end of the runway and
has gained altitude.

It must have been an amazing sight and
experience to be there.

I believe this photo was taken from an airplane passing northbound throught the LAX VFR corrider. VFR planes can pass by LAX along a shoreline route. Planes take off right in your direction but level off and pass under the corrider.

A visitor from Denmark posted Thu September 22, 2005:
One of the best, great shot.
It looks like it´s climbing vertical, only the signs on the runway tells you the right angle.

Okay...it took me a while to figure this one out! when i did, i was absolutely astounded that this picture got shot at all! amazing frame(s) of reference...there is a cognitive dissonance to seeing an airplane seemingly rise from an opposite plane(a 'plane'/runway that looks like a kid's charcoal drawing)and head straight for the camera...amazing, truly amazing...thank you!

Excellent picture...one cannot get a better angle .. doesnt get better than this!!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 25, 2004:
The angle of the shot with the 747 coming right at you & the runway in the background, the action of the gear retracting. The subject itself (I think the 747 is an awesome sight), the graceful curve of the wings. The timing is remarkable, to be in that position at just the right time for the head-on shot as the gear is halfway up...great composition!
