This is a fantastic photo! Nothing like a 747 coming right at you. It looks quite a bit like the headline logo on the website!

This is a classic photo of the most beautiful aircraft ever designed. The timing, positioning, perspective can't be beat.

Nice. Kind of close though landing and takeoff, just in case of an aborted takeoff? Maybe optical illusion.
