The angle of the a/c and the absence of runway in the frame make it look super-imposed. Great composition, great picture!

Amazing! But tell me, doesn't the background look like a ceiling? I thought at first glimpse, a 747 flying indoor?!?!

The angle!!... You know it's a Sam Chui. This was a tiny square under "editor's choice" and I just about said it outloud when I saw it, "That's a Sam Chui!" Clicked it... Yep, it's Sam's work. 5 stars to the photographer with the most recognizable shots out there!

NCA has passed by me several times on LAX taxiway @ the Imperial Terminal through the years. Great to see it reaching for the skies in this unique photo!
