I had this kind of shot in mind ever since the delivery of Lufthansa's retro 747-8 in april. Unfortunately in summer it is hardly possible due to the high sun and heat haze, and later on either the timetable, the weather in general or a few clouds were not on my side. But persistence paid eventually off and here is flight LH498 to Mexico City making the left turn after a runway 25C takeoff in perfect weather conditions.

Isn't it wonderful when it all fits together? The right plane, the right weather, the right time, the right departure runway... and then you just clip the stabilizer tip! Just kidding, great shot JK!

Awesome picture and quality Julien, even more when you have that shot in mind, it not like it just happened. Congrats. - Thiago Trevisan

What a photo! And what a plane. After seeing this 747-8 in this shot, Lufthansa can send all their A-380's back to their hangars.
