A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat May 24, 2014:
Wonderful shot, full of action, and the weather which adds to the drama!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed January 9, 2013:
In addition to the range issue discussed below; note that BA has operated an A318 service (since 2009/2010?) London LCY-NYC JFK that actually flies non-stop on the way back, on the first leg it stops in Shannon but thats merely because it cannot take off from the short London City runway with the required fuel.

A visitor from France posted Sun February 14, 2010:
Love the rain with the reverses and the landing lights. @ the visitor from Mexico, the A318 has a good range with passengers, so empty, it can do the trip without any problem. Other planes with a shorter range may do a ferry trip with fuel tanks in the cabin, or hopping from island to island, or both.

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Thu June 11, 2009:
Very interesting shot! Landing in rain - is always spectacular!

A visitor from United Arab Emirates posted Thu May 21, 2009:
Lovely picture of European summer! I love to see a/c blasting water, dust etc.

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Thu March 5, 2009:
Beautiful picture!

A visitor from Mexico posted Wed June 18, 2008:
WOW looks awesome all the water behind, hey got a stupid question but i'll ask it : how can they make a A318 go from Europe to Mexico??

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 6, 2006:

Why would they let a plane takeoff at that airport? It's to wet and slippery!!!
