Amazing photo!

Super moment, super high-quality and matches todays standards though being almost 29 years old.

Very, very, very well done, Brian!

Great photo of a historic take off. The quality of the photo is impressive, considering its age. Very clear details and colors.

The image is well framed, well timed, and the hulls on display are beautiful. Call me a sucker for an unpainted fuselage.

You've gotta be kidding me Brian, this is unreal mate!! Look at the detail, it's spectacular. I'd ditch all 1400+ images I've got here to have shot this!

So you took this yesterday? It doesn't look like 1977. Love the shot! Great plane, wish I could've seen the American 747s in action.

Great shot! Looks like it was taken recently and gives you the 70's feel too.
