Phat shot my friend!! Absolutely stunning image that it was a pleasure to be part of (even if I only provided the exact time of departure from BNE for you!!!!!). This shot is a credit to you and it's a pleasure to know people are still "thinking outside the square" when it comes to covering the big events. Cheers, C.

It ist rather unusual and difficult to take photos from above an aircraft. Sometimes we get one when we are in flight ourselves with mostly bad conditions for a shot out of the window
of an aircraft. The photo o Gabriel is very interesting as the plane is so nearby that you see many details and the angle ist phantastic. It is the first picture that shows the new A 380 from such a position I think. Good Idea with the helicopter. Congratulations

Perfect! Elegant!

From this angle she looks beautiful everywhere. Doesn't have real beauties some ugly things in the face seen in some situations only ? ;-)

... now I am waiting for shots with the A380 next to smaller planes for size comparisons ...

Looks like beautiful blue whale over the sea. Looks great. May it can land in CGK.

A good photo. Just the plane. No clatter around, no unnecessary details and nice background. Pity it does not have traditional QANTAS colours. The anaemic blue tail has neither character nor a message (sorry A380 is hard not to notice); it is just pale and makes this great plane look boring, not like a graceful long distance jumping kangaroo. Of course I may be mistaken and it will be "dressed up" in the traditional and vibrant QANTAS colours, or perhaps some computer whiz kids can fix it – just kidding :)
