Beautiful, just beautiful!!!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun June 7, 2009:
So dramatic what speed was he doing

A visitor from Malta posted Thu March 27, 2008:
Wow!! that pilot must be very good in keepin at that level i can imagine the rate of climb in take off!!! beautiful aircraft

A visitor from France posted Thu January 3, 2008:
Kind pilot

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 28, 2007:
So much for pitching for V2+10 :)

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 29, 2007:
The landing gear retraction must have happened very very quickly for a shot like this to happen.

A visitor from Malta posted Fri July 13, 2007:
This amazing take off is performed by one of the best pilots in malta, a self made professional pilot! keep it up, i am sure there are alot of sour grapes by pretenders on this little island!! Great Shot!! the pilot is a true professional aviator, wow and big clap to you sir !!!! Just amazing !!! u should pass on your legacy we need more true aviators like u! What a shot !!!

A visitor from India posted Wed February 14, 2007:
This is not a great scene.but the way its taken is the best

A visitor from Spain posted Tue January 9, 2007:
Very sharp and an interesting scene

A visitor from Mexico posted Mon December 18, 2006:
Lear 60 is a very nice aircraft, it looks that the pilot was posing for this photo!! congratulations to the photographer for getting such a great shot

A visitor from Uruguay posted Sun November 5, 2006:
WOW! This shot is just amazing. So low.

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 3, 2006:
It's not so hard to comprehend. at my local airport i see this stuff almost daily. look at the hieght of the plane off the ground, he has probably been airborn for around 4 to 6 seconds, some pilots are trained to retract gear at the moment vertical speed is achieved. however this pilot is very talented to float it twice the gear hieght at that speed. good job and good picture.

A visitor from Malta posted Wed July 26, 2006:
Well Done, nice moment captured, the small and the giant. gr8 Ian, well done.

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 14, 2006:
WOW! This shot is just amazing. So low.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue June 6, 2006:

A visitor from Switzerland posted Sat April 8, 2006:
Very low!!

A visitor from United States posted Sun March 26, 2006:
Always nice seeing low level pictures

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri March 17, 2006:
That pilot must be very skilled to keep it that low!

A visitor from South Africa posted Thu March 16, 2006:
Nice pic, talk about using ground effect.

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue February 28, 2006:
The right time, the right place! But, the boss of the pilot know what he is doing?

A visitor from United States posted Sat February 25, 2006:
Where the hell did his gear go?

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 10, 2006:
Nice shot with the other plane in the background, but if it's on takeoff, why is the learjet's landing gear up so close to the ground?

A visitor from - posted Sun February 5, 2006:
I love how you can see the pilot's faces.

A visitor from Malta posted Fri February 3, 2006:
Cpt.Lino Xuereb is the best maltese pilot I ever seen in my life.Here he is doing one of his usual spectacular departures...

A visitor from United States posted Thu February 2, 2006:
Perfect pic, not even at wing level of the Airbus! GREAT!

A visitor from Kuwait posted Wed February 1, 2006:
Spectacular shot. wow!!! lower than the 330 in the background.

A visitor from Malta posted Wed February 1, 2006:
We being maltese know what that pilot can do. Tremendous shot Ian, keep it up and well done

A visitor from France posted Wed February 1, 2006:
This photo is great! because it's very hard to take the plane in this position when he hasn't already climbed.so,bravo...

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 1, 2006:
My daddy has a Lear Jet 60 too. I think it is to small. But the seats are comfortable.

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 1, 2006:
You arren't Ian Wright the 'Globe Trekker' are you?? Great shot!! How close are those 2 kids from the active Rwy?

A visitor from France posted Wed February 1, 2006:
Learjet without flaps and without gears that's a very strange take off. I think the captain was a military pilot :) whatever, it's great picture!!! 5*

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 1, 2006:
Great view of the speed demon that is the lear 60

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Look like something I'd do on Flight Simulator!!

A visitor from Iran, Islamic Republic Of posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I think that the pilot had forgotten to open landing gear

A visitor from New Zealand posted Tue January 31, 2006:
We seem to have been seeing a few spectacular takeoff photos recently, and this one is definitely up there with the best of them! Great work Ian.

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Great Timing. What a great shot of a low take off

A visitor from Poland posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Excellent. Pozdrawiam Mati

A visitor from France posted Tue January 31, 2006:
I do this type of T/O when I've no pax in the plane... picking up speed and climb ... Love it !

A visitor from Turkey posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Instant action of the wheels...Nice!

A visitor from Mexico posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Really it´s so low. Holy cow! Can you belive this? From this angle it looks like a radio-controled aircraft. T.B.

A visitor from Poland posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Wow! Great shot! By the way... I know Ian Wright from Discovery program - globetrotter ;) very nice boy.

A visitor from Malta posted Tue January 31, 2006:
And thats what i call a very cool dept of a Learjet keeping less than 100ft along rwy32 and pull up reaching 14,000 in 1min....keep them coming Ian.

A visitor from Uruguay posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Breathtaking picture. Where's the landing gear? This pilot has got to be kidding. How can he keep her that low?

A visitor from Germany posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Who needs wheels upon in the air? Very strange picture. But very nice indeed.

A visitor from Australia posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Low take-off's rock!! Great pic!
