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.

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~

A visitor from Canada posted Wed November 16, 2005:
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.

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 16, 2005:
Its an amazing shot of an airliner landing and being so close to the people. It is a great airport to take photos of

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed November 16, 2005:
It's just beautiful to see a big plane like that, gliding in over the sea and the beach, making a nice touchdown on the runway.defying gravity.just beautiful.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed November 16, 2005:
Happy Birthday James! And what a way to spend it! As Always great shot. I look forward to seeing more from you :-D Kaz

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed November 16, 2005:
Niceone James!

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 16, 2005:
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!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue November 15, 2005:
Just beautiful, and still an amazing sight! I especially like the shadow of the tail on the beach!
