PH-BDO / DO-012 (cn 24262/1642) Consolation prize caption: A KLM airliner was escorted into a Duckburg military airfield by fighters today after inadvertently overflying McDuck's Money Bin. Seriously, for those unfamiliar with it, the intrepid duck is a female mallard which should be about 58 cm (23 in) in length

"Mallard 433, cleared to land, caution the 737 on the parallel."

A visitor from Singapore posted Sun March 22, 2009:
It's a race against the duck.

A visitor from Australia posted Wed February 11, 2009:
In all fairness, i think the bird is chasing a copyright infringement...

A visitor from Austria posted Wed February 11, 2009:
"Royal Duck Airlines" - what an amazing shot!

A visitor from - posted Sun January 25, 2009:
Imagine the engineers 100's of years ago trying to design aircraft seeing this picture. There are some significant similarities with the front of the aircraft and the bird's head. Spectacular shot!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri January 9, 2009:
Honey, where's my gun...it's duck season!!

A visitor from Germany posted Fri January 9, 2009:

Simply the best picture on here - a one in a million chance of capturing it - well done, superb !

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri July 11, 2008:
This pic made my day! Nice shot! Congrats!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon June 30, 2008:
KLM VS Bird?

answer: the bird :-) cause the KLM is slowing down with its brakes/reverse thrusters

A visitor from United States posted Sun June 22, 2008:
Very well done indeed! Excellent timing. 5*s

A visitor from Canada posted Sat June 14, 2008:
Great picture of the duck... Too bad there is an aircraft in the background...

A visitor from Germany posted Wed June 11, 2008:
Love the pic.
BTW.: The duck is more efficent, quieter and nearly free of emission (merely some 'blue ice') - will we ever learn to be so good in flying?

A visitor from United States posted Sat March 22, 2008:
Nice Picture! Indeed for the comment down there about the wake turbulence the duck may cause to the 737

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 15, 2008:
And KLM takes the lead. Love this pic. Very interesting indeed

A visitor from Venezuela posted Sun December 23, 2007:
Looks like a 100 meters-dash photofinish!! if I had seen this bird flying next to the landing a/c I¨d had thought I was on hidden camera or something like it.

A visitor from Spain posted Thu November 29, 2007:
It is strange seeing a duck flying wingtip formation with a civil (or any) aircraft. I thought that either the airfield would be cleared of birds, etc, or they would be scared off by the engine noise, anyway!

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Wed October 17, 2007:
Most lucky photo i ever seen. :D The flying Duckman. ;)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue March 27, 2007:
To get the timing of the picture just right is pretty difficult. Congratulations on being at the right moment at the right place and pressing the button. Congratulations

A visitor from South Africa posted Fri February 2, 2007:
Fantastic pic well done.

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 3, 2006:
Excellent picture and so clear

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Mon November 20, 2006:
I am sure the duck is gonna win, the KLM is reversing, and she doesn´t seem to have a lack of power :)

A visitor from Germany posted Thu November 16, 2006:
The one who brakes, loses ;-)

A visitor from Switzerland posted Fri November 10, 2006:
Ah! Timing is everything. This is a photographer's shot, camera always at the ready and lady luck always ready to lend support!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun November 5, 2006:

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 29, 2006:

A visitor from Austria posted Fri September 22, 2006:
The noses are to similar.

A visitor from Mexico posted Sun August 6, 2006:
Gret shot!!

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 5, 2006:
Without a doubt this is probably one of the best photos on here... Crisp, clear, and one heck of a race! Kudos to the photographer!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed January 4, 2006:

A visitor from Germany posted Wed January 4, 2006:
KLM: Royal Duck Airlines. Love the comment Peter!
Ever tried selling the pic to KLM? ;-)

A visitor from Canada posted Wed January 4, 2006:
Wow. Unusual sight. It remind me a picture with of a Dash8-200(?)landing and close to it a duck (again?)leaving the path of the aircraft. It was written; "Duck is number two for landing"

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed January 4, 2006:
Great timing. This is a truly unique shot.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed January 4, 2006:
It's like it was planned, the bird would be there so perfect..

If only it had been a swan but still amazing. Don't think anyone will get a shot like this in long time

A visitor from Mexico posted Tue January 3, 2006:
What an escort! So gorgous! T.B.

A visitor from Portugal posted Tue January 3, 2006:
Great comment :))

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 3, 2006:
I hope that duck's maintaining separation distance ... could cause wake turbulence to the 737

A visitor from Egypt posted Tue January 3, 2006:
Great shot!! just perfect

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue January 3, 2006:

A visitor from Australia posted Tue January 3, 2006:
Capturing the bird right on the fusualge...nice!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue January 3, 2006:
Unbelievable, great timing! It looks like the duck is taped to the aircraft.

A visitor from United States posted Wed December 28, 2005:
For the longer ranged models of our feathered friends.
