Aviation Photo #1333250 Boeing 777-306/ER - KLM - Royal Dutch Airlines

KLM's new toy on its way to Dubai. I was hoping for a more spectacular bank so that its long wings and raked wingtips would show better. Still, its a pretty awesome aircraft and so loooong.

Absolutely gorgeous shot! KLM's blue matches the sky... I also love the wing flex on this magnificent Boeing.

Thanks! I missed this one last week while she was taking off from runway 24. I had just put my camera in my back pocket, so I was not able to make a picture. So thinks for sharing!

A greater bank angle would be nice, but the way it is, it is sooo obvious how much the wings are deflected upwards, appearing well above the top of the fuselage. Impressive indeed !!

I think even at this angle those raked tips looked incredible. The first thing I thought of after thinking how awesome this picture was, is I would hate to be stuck in the bank of four seats in the middle. Great shot Tim!

Composition is great with no shadows. the absence of any type of back ground makes the 777 stand out

This is a very beautiful shot. I also like the length of the a/c as it does show a definite 773 appeal. I hope to see this bird at JFK sometime ... perhaps summer.

And she spreads her wings and flies away. The KLM commercial with the swans is too true. The upward lifted wings just make her seem like a bird, and a beautiful bird she is!

This is a beautiful picture, Tim.
And you know, one thing that always amazes me is the bend in the wings when the airplane is fully loaded as here. I know it is a known quantity, so it isn't a problem, but I wonder how handling and lift characteristics of the wing is changed when it is bent up at the ends like that. I would like to see a head-on view of this aircraft, at this time. Thank you for posting your great photos, Tim.
