Just beautiful, and still an amazing sight! I especially like the shadow of the tail on the beach!

I love the reaction of the people on the beach near the fence! Looks like they are ducking and trying to brace it with their hands, as if the plane is being dropped vertically from the sky! Excellent shot!

Not only the quality of the picture but what is absolutely amazing is the location of the picture. The people on the ground must be deaf. Too have captured this image at this precise moment and its location just metres above the ground and the peoples reaction is just wonderful and a pleasure to see.

From Hong Kong: My lovely 747-400. I'm dream I am lying on the sand and let it crash on me. I will also take pictures underneath from the nose, the stomach and the tail and see how close we are. ~0~

Every time I see one of these babies just hanging there in the sky I think, how can these things fly? Just the most awesome thing man has ever created. And to be close enough to almost touch the wheels, feel the jet wash ... yup.
