Exactly the right moment - just a hint of burning rubber in the background, yet the wheels apparently are still. Beautiful shot.

How impressive photo.
Now, I wonder if somebody could tell me why this planes have the wheels so, and A380 inverted. I mean, when they land, rear wheels touch down first, but on A380, is the first wheel.
\ for A380, and possibly others planes.
/ for the others.

This a really sharp image, considering that the plane was moving so fast, up to 200mph, this is also such an accurate timing too!

Wonderful. I could not imagine seeing the wheels just before take-off. All I have seen is a hazy picture. You really have caught it at the right moment. Not many can get it though.

Now that's a picture perfect shot. Even the landing gear is perfectly aligned to the runway. MAN must have very steady winds or the pilot has a steady hand. Good stuff, 5 stars.

Great shot but may I recommend a smaller lens - you have just cropped the nose and tail in this otherwise wonderful landing shot ;-)
