I absolutely love this shot. Will someone be able to advice how much flaps they are using? Just curious, no conspiracy just wondering. This is one of the most iconic and beautiful wing ever, in my opinion. Thanks Fyodor

What a shot. The wing's shadow makes it more impressive. You have two things to do in St. Maarten: plane spotting' and swimming. T.B.

The picture is great. But shouldn't the camera be turned off during landing? (I suppose it's an electronic camera)

Great shot...great perspective Fyodor!

As to the flaps question. a "standard" setting would be flaps 30, but this certainly looks more like flaps 20.

That's quite a point of view! Great shot, Mr Borisov, I guess how happy you made those fellas on the beach when they saw themselves in this frame.

Shouldn't the camera be turned off for landing? Are you kidding me? For what reason?

Great timing, Fyodor - love the arm-waver on the beach being photographed against the awesome 747 at that exact same moment!
