Remark Photographer
LN-RRT (cn 28326/1036) In a dramatic approach to rwy 05 with strong wind from south and gust up to 36kt with some rain and poor visibility, notice the amazing vortex coming out of both wings. Netimage to reduce the grain.

Wingtip vorticies are cool

A visitor from Germany posted Thu August 31, 2006:
It schows the extraordinary and dangerous situation of Funchal-Airport very well. It also gives an impression of the "job" of the pilots.

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue August 22, 2006:
Scandinavien viking power!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat February 11, 2006:
Because of the zoomlens the background looks quite near. The heat from the engines. The fact that the pilot is adjusting the aircraft just before touchdown en off course the vapourtrailes from the wings. This is what makes aircraft great to watch!

A visitor from Ireland posted Wed February 1, 2006:

Wonderful shot, the vortex is amazing.

A visitor from United States posted Thu January 12, 2006:
It's very lively. I always love to see any Boeing 737's landing and this one is one of grand prize especially with vapor line and engine's heat.

A visitor from Spain posted Thu January 12, 2006:
Not easy this visual approach (no ILS): 197º right turn and try to align with the runway...if you can !

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu January 12, 2006:
Awesome photo, love the background to it, and those vortex look great!
