Remark Photographer
HS-TGY (cn 28705/1164) The size of the B744 makes it look like it is lower when crossing the final stretch of sands before touching down on Phuket's runway 09. A pair of German tourists whipped out their point-n-shoots to capture this screaming beast. I capture them with the beast instead.

This reminds me of a time when my dad was going on a business trip and he said i couldn't come. So I started crying and said his plane was going to crash because it was dirty like this plane.

A visitor from - posted Thu October 9, 2008:
All airlines flying to HKT ro SXM should ensure that their birds are spotlessly clean...this is one really dirty aircraft..and I sure am not flying Thai..

Nice beach and the beauty looks stunning....jatt rulz

Time for a bath!

I like this shot quite a bit. reminds me a little of st. maarten.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu January 26, 2006:
Excellent photo but thai airways should retire this
747 befor it falls apart.

A visitor from Ireland posted Wed January 25, 2006:
Brilliant camera work

A visitor from Germany posted Wed January 25, 2006:
This image has all the ingredients for a vanGogh painting:
a beautiful landscape, a rippled turquoise sea, a fishing boat, golden sand, dark green vegetation,
humans, a soft colored sky. Add the high tech overhead (even from the national carrier), all arranged in perfect proportions. This is art at its finest. Thank you, KC, for sharing it with us!

A visitor from United States posted Wed January 25, 2006:
Good quality and position of the aircraft, the ominous weather in the backround add character to the shot and having other people in the picture gives it good perspective

A visitor from Philippines posted Wed January 25, 2006:
Wow!!! Never thought I'd be getting shots like this without having to go all the way to SXM. Phuket is only about 2 or 3 hours away from Manila. That 747 needs a wash real bad now. The A330's they bring to Manila are in much worse shape.

A visitor from Portugal posted Wed January 25, 2006:
Should we sit there facing the ocean or facing the sky??

A visitor from Canada posted Thu January 19, 2006:
I like this because it looks more natural (no building, vehicle, etc) than the ones in SXM which has hotels, cars, etc... Glad you got this shot!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu January 19, 2006:
Hi Sim! good shot!

A visitor from Spain posted Thu January 19, 2006:
Really a nice pic! well done!!

A visitor from Germany posted Thu January 19, 2006:
That's a nice photo.

A visitor from United States posted Thu January 19, 2006:
All these planes now seem to be dirty. The airlines need to take care of these birds. Why would someone wana fly on a dirty plane?! Good picture thought. I agree your shot is alot better :)

A visitor from Thailand posted Thu January 19, 2006:
It's good.

A visitor from Mexico posted Wed January 18, 2006:
Good shot however the climatic conditions and dirty plane made this picture a little bit sadly. But every picture with a plane on it it's a good picture so congratulation

A visitor from Australia posted Wed January 18, 2006:
Wow! From the thumbnail view, this 744 looks like an A380

A visitor from Canada posted Wed January 18, 2006:
That 747-4D7 is in pretty bad shape. Nice Shot!

A visitor from Israel posted Wed January 18, 2006:
I love it, looks like SXM =D

A visitor from United States posted Wed January 18, 2006:
I hate to be them if something goes wrong.

A visitor from United States posted Wed January 18, 2006:
Asia's answer to SXM! That plane needs a shower though.

A visitor from France posted Wed January 18, 2006:
Great shot ! But very dirty 747...

A visitor from Mexico posted Wed January 18, 2006:
Like Princess Juliana. Just a little bit higher. T.B.

A visitor from France posted Wed January 18, 2006:
Great shot but this B744 looks very dirty. A dusk light would be very nice! But great after all, nice job!

A visitor from Kuwait posted Wed January 18, 2006:
My favorite aircraft 747-400 the best of the best.

A visitor from United States posted Wed January 18, 2006:
I always like the beach shots, but this one the plane wasn't the best material. Yet it still warms my heart.

A visitor from Korea, Republic Of posted Wed January 18, 2006:
Feels like Maho beach~ Wow

A visitor from United States posted Wed January 18, 2006:
Ah hah! Nice shot, KC! The two photographers in front gives the photo a whole different look. Great job!
