Sam, I like your work. What do you do for a living? Whatever job it is, it's one I'd love to do too. My favourite airline and my favourite plane, so of course I'm impressed. I didn't think the rain could get through the smog in LA. I really look forward to your shots on A net. You really move around and get up close and personal, in a way few other photographers can. Please keep up your contributions. Thanks Sam, from a grateful fan Down Under.

A great close up showing the very moment the mighty 747 wants to get in the air yet still clings onto the ground that supports her. How's the photographers ears after she passes?

Absolutely fantastic Sam. What did you do, get a copy of the take-off card, work out where it would rotate then sneek a ride in an airport 'follow-me' car? A magician never reveals his secrets!
