Remark Photographer
JA8081 (cn 25064/851) Taken from our Cessna at 3500ft during our shoreline transition over LAX. This was a great sight. As the 747 moved on and gained speed it required more and more acrobatics inside the cramped Cessna as it was virtually behind us at that point.

You did justice to this lady with this superb shot, my friend, capturing her when she shows her power, grace and unmatched elegance. It's a work of art, this shot of yours, awe-inspiring, specially for a long-time 747 fan like me. Thank you!

747FOREVER!!!

Another great shot. How did you get permission to get in front of it?

A visitor from Canada posted Mon October 11, 2010:
Besides the jetblast/exhaust heat, check out the angle of the shadows from the poles on the ground in comparison to the shadows from the a/c. Rudder shawdow for example! I just wish you would tell us what equipment you used Daniel and if you got permission prior to flying in the vicinity?

A visitor from Canada posted Tue October 27, 2009:
WOW!thats amazing! you cant find pictures better than that!!!!!!! yeah!

I am very sure of having seen an almost similar photograph of a SQ B747-400, again shot from a Cessna.

A visitor from United States posted Sun June 21, 2009:
Very good composition!

A visitor from Australia posted Sat June 13, 2009:
Great! i'm only 11 and i love that photo! question did you have to get special permission to get that close?

A visitor from United States posted Sat May 16, 2009:
That is awesome to see! I am an Air Traffic Controller at SoCal TRACON and I have often wondered what those transition guys see and feel while transitioning over the final appproach course! 5 stars!

Right Place, Right Time

This photo looks like it was made for a film as how close the aircraft looks in the shot.

a lot of condensation

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 2, 2007:
You take great photos-- because they're taken with the right amount of light and a good angle. Nice wing flex!

A visitor from Mexico posted Sat August 18, 2007:
Very elegant contrast between white and grey colours, and de thrust behind de wings shows you the power of those engines!! excellent photo!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed August 8, 2007:
Wow, this is probably my favourite picture so far on this website. Awesome!

A visitor from United States posted Fri January 26, 2007:
I love this photo. Perfect. Very much like those Sam Chui aerial shots. 5 stars!!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu January 4, 2007:
Even it was a difficult picture to make, the simplicity and contrast of the 747 with the background strikes me :) Great job!

A visitor from Canada posted Wed August 23, 2006:
Beutiful shot, shows the mihty size of this beast keep em comin man

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 23, 2006:
Indeed, a great picture. The gamble paid off. This is probably the best and most creative Aviation picture ever.

A visitor from Australia posted Thu June 15, 2006:
I cannot believe people think this is fake. They obviously have no idea what they are looking at. The blurriness is from the engines. Its a masterful shot and one to be very proud of.

A visitor from Australia posted Thu June 15, 2006:
It looks like you are suspended in air with the aircraft. Its very up close and personal, so to speak.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon May 22, 2006:
Beautifully sharp, lovely shot, typical of the aero postcards taken during w.w.2 but the plane appears static purhaps a slight blur on the background or even around the plane would not come amiss. but i like it

A visitor from India posted Sun May 21, 2006:
Check out the view beyond expectation

A visitor from Canada posted Sat May 20, 2006:
What abt wake turb ?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon March 20, 2006:
It is not a photoshop.i can gaurantee that. The bluriness is caused by the 'haze' from the engines. Is it me or does the wingflex make it look so much like an A340. It is a very impresive shot.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri March 10, 2006:
Photoshop? A Fake? No my friends this is an awesome shot taken by flying too close for comfort. The blur is exhaust haze of those mighty engines. The series of photos that that one belongs too are among my all time fav's from this site. It is an amazing photo and I send major kudos to the Photographer!!! Well Done man!!!!!!!!!!

A visitor from Canada posted Sat February 4, 2006:
That was a great shot I would like to even be there.

A visitor from New Zealand posted Wed December 7, 2005:
Great shot...It clearly demonstrates the sheer power and might of the best looking aircraft ever made from such a unique angle, And it happens to be my favorite JAL c/s, I don't like their new one btw.

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 14, 2005:
