In the past, the district near Hong Kong Kai Tak Airport (already close now) can feel how close with the big bird. But this picture shows that we can even feel hot air from the engine.
I wish I can have the chance to lay down on the sand and feel the birds press on me. Wow, wonderful.

Cracker Pic!

When you compare this recent pic to the overall most popular pic on airliners.net you will notice that they have now got big rocks on the beach, they must be worried about sea erosion.

My favourite, 747 400 series. I never have a chance to touch its body. And in here, I can rather feel it as close as possible. So touching.

The colors of the KLM Boeing 747 blends to the color of the sky over the island and the sceneries below!
