G-SIID (cn 01-04) Apparently the ribbon cutting is easier done when inverted! Will Curtis impresses the crowd at the Air Tattoo! [Canon EOS 300D using Sigma 170-500mm AF lens] Holding the poles are Luke Czepiela and Ben Holmes

Honda for the win!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed June 16, 2010:
Awesome action photo!

A visitor from - posted Sat October 3, 2009:
Perfect moment, but imagine beeing one of the guys holding the poles, and then the plane hits the one you hold, could end up pretty bad!

A visitor from Belgium posted Sat September 5, 2009:
It's a honda :)
wondefull shot, perfect timing.. 5* !!

So cool, great capture

A visitor from Croatia posted Sat April 25, 2009:
Very skillfull pilot..

A visitor from United States posted Sun March 8, 2009:
It shows how good these guy's are!

A visitor from United States posted Sat January 31, 2009:
Wow that is one great pilot.
also i like the blur in the picture gives a sense of speed.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri December 12, 2008:
Well timed with plane through poles

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue November 18, 2008:
Simply stunning shot!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri July 25, 2008:
Classic image!! well captured - good timing and panning - aircraft is pin sharp with motion blurr behind ginving a real sense of speed and action. P Shorrock - Windsor UK

A visitor from Poland posted Tue March 11, 2008:
Hey,
Thanks for posting, I'm Luke holding the pole, it was great weekend.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat December 1, 2007:
Great timing through the poles, but only 4 stars worth due to the clear lack of prop blurr Im afraid!! ;-) John Franks Glos.

A visitor from Greece posted Sun November 18, 2007:
Brave people on the runway you would need alot of courage... graet picture

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 25, 2007:
Now THAT is a professinal pilot. I've never seen that before inches towards the ground!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon July 9, 2007:
I was there on this day and saw this, this is not a fake. The pilot was really that low. From what i remember there was a row of these ribbons forming a low 'tunnel'. This was just one of them. The people holding the ribbons were volunteers from the crowd!!

A visitor from Norway posted Fri April 27, 2007:
Woow!!!!!. Thats low. God photo, nice jobb.

A visitor from United States posted Sat February 10, 2007:
Wow man, I don't know what this picture shows more. Skill or trust.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue November 14, 2006:
Very nice shot - great action!!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri November 10, 2006:
Amazing Photo... I actually saw this display at RAF Fairfood in 2005 (RIAT) i would recamend this show to anyone who is even slightly intrested in plains. great viewing area where you can see everything with live comentry. Stuart Woolley UK

A visitor from Norway posted Tue August 15, 2006:
INZANE! Is this a fake or is it just as excellent as it looks?? This guy is truelly a real pro! Very cool picture!

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 2, 2006:
Now that guy has a pair

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu July 27, 2006:
Wow! Thats awesome! Thats one brave pilot and two really brave pole holders!! Great timing and super sharp too!!

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 18, 2006:
One of the many wonders of flight is the defiance of gravity, of which this is an excellent example!

A visitor from - posted Tue June 27, 2006:
Everything in the photo is impressive: the pilot, airplane, and the pole hoders.

A visitor from United States posted Mon June 26, 2006:

A visitor from - posted Wed June 14, 2006:
COOL

A visitor from United States posted Tue June 13, 2006:
To catch the plane in that attitude just as it was passing through the uprights would take EXCELLENT timing, knowledge of the camera and a GREAT DEAL of luck.

A visitor from United States posted Tue June 13, 2006:
Color, sharpness, stop action, position of plane, color balance, focus of subject, frame fit.

A visitor from United States posted Tue June 13, 2006:
Since I am a pilot I appreciate the difficulty-and danger- of flyimg low and upside down. Frankly, I think he's out of his gourd.

A visitor from United States posted Tue June 13, 2006:
Excellent capture of the bravery and hazard to both the pilot and the pole holders. Putting the plane in focus instead of the guys on the ground echoes the concentration of the pilot, who is in absolute control of the stunt. Great timing and instinct from the photographer and amazing skill from the pilot.

A visitor from Ireland posted Tue June 13, 2006:
Wow !

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue June 13, 2006:
Unbelievable

A visitor from United States posted Tue June 13, 2006:

A visitor from Sweden posted Sun June 11, 2006:
Amazing!

A visitor from United States posted Sat June 10, 2006:
The ability of the pilot if this is a real time picture, and not some computer manipulated nonsense.

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 9, 2006:
Crazy cool

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 9, 2006:
GOOD THING THOSE TWO POLE HOLDERS HAD THERE SAFETY VESTS ON FROM ANGLE IT LOOKS A LITTLE CLOSE.

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 9, 2006:
Amazing sharpness and clarity, considering the subject was travelling so quickly. Composition is very stimulating and intriguing.

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 9, 2006:
Wow! That sure takes a big set of cohones, both the pilot and the guys on the ground!

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 9, 2006:
The pilot is amazing! That takes talent.

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 9, 2006:
Moving plane totally in focus really stands out with the slightly blurred background...this shot was technically difficult to get.

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 9, 2006:
Very impressive photo, although I do prefer watching Mr. Sean D. Tucker perform the same maneuver. Knifeedge left, knifeedge right, inverted - the triple ribbon cut.

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Fri June 9, 2006:
Didn't know honda made planes

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 9, 2006:
Crazy but one of a kind..... should not be tried by anyone else..4 stars

Now THAT is stunt flying!

A visitor from Finland posted Fri June 9, 2006:
Unbelievable

A visitor from - posted Fri June 9, 2006:
Great freeze action, nice depth of field, good details on the airplane.

A visitor from - posted Fri June 9, 2006:
Take a good close look at the elevator. If you draw a chord line on the wing and the horizontal stab you will find that the tendncy for this aircraft would be to go nose down (up as you are looking at it). But there appears to be some back sick pressure being applied ther and it seems he's pulling the nose even more towards the ground. There's a difference between aviating and flying. Thats flyin'!

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 9, 2006:
This photo is so excellent

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 9, 2006:
Amazing!

A visitor from Poland posted Tue May 9, 2006:
Only pilots from former Soviet republics can do so mad things. :))) It's really amazing. Great photo!

A visitor from United States posted Sun May 7, 2006:
The detail of the photo is great and just the fact that it's inverted so close to the runway

A visitor from United States posted Fri April 21, 2006:
Is there any more impressive skill show off then this??? Does it get any crazier, WOW

A visitor from Puerto Rico posted Tue March 14, 2006:
I think the pilot is somewhat insane but the guy's standing in the runway are even more insane!!!! look at how close they are to the plane.

A visitor from Israel posted Sun March 12, 2006:
Great picture. it must be really scary to be in that plane.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri March 3, 2006:
I saw this stunt at the Royal International Air Tattoo 2005, it made my heart stop when he cut the ribbons!! This photo brings back that heart stopping feeling!

A visitor from Poland posted Wed March 1, 2006:
Great foto !

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 26, 2006:
I love the detail of the plane during the amazing stunt.

Amazing shot

A visitor from Macedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic Of posted Sat February 11, 2006:
Incredible!
He's less then a 1.5m above the ground. I don't even want to think what a sudden gust of wind may cause...

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 3, 2006:
The sponsor should be written the other way around---
GREAT SHOT

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri February 3, 2006:
Very brave people in green!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri February 3, 2006:
Great timing from the photog and what a superb demo of flying skill too!! Those pole holders must have nerves of steel! :-)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat January 28, 2006:
Hells bells - perfect flying and perfect timing by the photog

A visitor from Colombia posted Fri January 20, 2006:
Amazing

A visitor from France posted Thu January 19, 2006:
So that's the deal : I give you 5 stars, but I give 5 more to the pilot ! 5 for you, 10 for him.

The point is you got your 5 stars ;D

A visitor from Australia posted Sun January 15, 2006:
Wow, thats amazing flying there! i would one day hope to be able to do that!!

A visitor from France posted Sun January 15, 2006:
Completely crazy ! ! ! A very impressive shot !

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri January 13, 2006:
Top shot Phil - I was there too and remember how close he came to the ground!! Timing of this shot is excellent under the ribbon and so sharp - A Great shot thanks for sharing!

A visitor from Kuwait posted Fri January 13, 2006:
That's really amazing

A visitor from United States posted Fri January 13, 2006:
Holy guacamole thats amazing, TRUE skill

A visitor from Canada posted Tue January 10, 2006:
On some Pitts Special airplanes, the sponsor is written upside down, this shot would be even nicer if Honda was written upside down hehe

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon January 9, 2006:
Lush!

A visitor from Belgium posted Fri January 6, 2006:
Caught in the middle of the action. If I were one of those guys I would be very scared.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri January 6, 2006:
A most impressive display of flying skill by the pilot! Great picture

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 9, 2005:
The clarity of this shot is amazing. ..And so is the pilot! Fantastic shot, I love it!

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 1, 2005:
Those green guys must not be on good terms with the boss if that's the assignment.

Great Pic.

A visitor from France posted Sun August 21, 2005:
