Remark Photographer
XV481 / H (cn 3355/0096) I was expecting this 19 sqn Phantom to hit the public road, but as I took this picture the pilot pushed to full throttle and missed the airfield fence by inches.....I Was a little shaky and deaf after this experience. I took this photo with a 50mm lens...that's why

WOW right place right time. Awsome capture.
Just wonderingdid the low flying aircraft sign in the roads come before or after this pilot.
(wish I had a camera when our pilot on 64SQN drop bombed 29SQN at RAF Leuchars with his outboard fuel tank after trying to land without undercarriage down)

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 14, 2011:
Impressive!!!

A visitor from Spain posted Fri June 24, 2011:
I've always admired this picture. Congratulations.

A visitor from - posted Wed October 13, 2010:
I'd put some train barriers in the road over there. Wouldn't like to be driving there in my truck.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed June 2, 2010:
I suppose it answers the question "How low can you go?" with "How high is the ground?!"

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 6, 2009:
Only the Phantom knows!

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 13, 2008:
Wow - That's really close.

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue April 29, 2008:
Breath taking.

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 21, 2007:
'Close up and personal' are always the greatest shots. This one is awesome.

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 26, 2007:
I sure would hate to be joggin down that road!

A visitor from Spain posted Wed October 24, 2007:
You are a lucky guy to see this Phantom in this wonderful angle. Great shot!

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 30, 2007:
It was as close as one can get.

A visitor from Germany posted Thu August 2, 2007:
Now we know where "Report if traffic in sight" comes from! :-)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon July 23, 2007:
Great photograph really capturing the mighty Phantom very close to the ground.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri July 13, 2007:
Yes, it should have taken off earlier the plane is to low i think. but it is a great shot of a masterpiece!!

A visitor from Turkey posted Mon July 9, 2007:
Incredible pose,reaaly amazing.Never drive your car when passing low flying altidute aircraft above you

A visitor from Mexico posted Wed February 28, 2007:
What more can you say but wow

A visitor from Germany posted Fri February 9, 2007:
Definitely much too low. Hazardous and a bit stupid.
Can you imagine this thing going bust and spillinbg the fuel all over?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun November 12, 2006:
Nice picture, I wish I'd taken it!

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 13, 2006:
Airplanes Alwys Land Right on top of your head in the Netherlands.

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 14, 2006:
This magnificent photo is of the f-4 phantom; one of america's finest fighter aircraft. seldom, if ever, will you see any fighter aircraft this close to the ground while in actual flight. since this generation of aircraft is no longer in our active inventory, enjoy it while you can. you will possibly never see another.

A visitor from France posted Fri June 9, 2006:
Rhhaaaaa Lovely !!
Phantom for ever !

Fantastic. Some of my happiest days on the mighty 19(F) Sqn! Dolphin Ops 4ever!

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 2, 2006:
Great shot. I'm sure the pilot was a little shaky afterwards too!

A visitor from United States posted Mon April 24, 2006:
Crazy

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri March 24, 2006:
Nice picture! I live next to this airforce base and I have seen this quite some times happen altough they have a precision approach radar!

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 22, 2006:
Did the wheels touch the roadway shortly after?

A visitor from United States posted Sat March 4, 2006:
Excellent. What a photo! The composition is great, the people in the background, the tree. I bet his ears were ringing after. How lucky to have got such a close shot. It just shows, being in the right spot can produce the best shots.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed February 15, 2006:
Wow must have been close

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 3, 2006:
Gotta imagine what would have happend had the pilot hit the ground...scary but still a cool pic!

A visitor from Slovakia posted Wed November 30, 2005:
Pilot must by crazy, or they have self-preservation instrument in off. I would like hear these people on the road.
View Pahantom cca 5 m over ground is COOOL :)

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 30, 2005:
Roar!

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 18, 2005:
Great shot! right place at the right time

A visitor from Sweden posted Sun October 2, 2005:
Unbelievable

A visitor from Hungary posted Sat September 17, 2005:
COOL!!!!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 17, 2005:
The LSO in me is screaming "power...power...burner!"
Brits knew how to fly the beast. One of the best performance shots ever of the phabulous phantom.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu September 15, 2005:
Cool!

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 12, 2005:
What timing! Perhaps not the best photo technically, but situationally it tells a fantastic story. You really did manage to frame this so well, the 'spectators' giving a great perspective on the size of the old Phantom.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon September 12, 2005:
The extreme low approach, just taken at
the right moment - this picture really
expresses tension !!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon September 12, 2005:
Good timing and a steady hand help this photo along with a detailed description of what was happening.

A visitor from Mexico posted Mon September 12, 2005:
Wow Very nice Pic, great moment for the miss app

A visitor from Israel posted Mon September 12, 2005:
How did you survive that noise man!?

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 12, 2005:
It looks like there were plenty of people on hand to watch this landing!

A visitor from New Zealand posted Mon September 12, 2005:
Naughty pilot- showing off
makes for a choice photo though!

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 12, 2005:
Being at the right place at the right time is a part of it. Using a 50 mm lens... That's just amazing. The color and clarity are top notch. The photographer was a lot closer to the plane than I would want to be. Considering the speed of the aircraft, I think he did a great job at getting the people, plane and surrounding terrain very well framed.

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 12, 2005:
Dude, this is sweet!

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 12, 2005:
Sweet!!!!!

You can almost see two sets of skid marks... and there not on the road !

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun September 11, 2005:
I´m also from holland (Deventer). But this is a very beautifull photo

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun September 11, 2005:
Phantoms Phorever !!!!

A visitor from France posted Sun September 11, 2005:
Knowing the fact that this picture was tooken with a 50 mm lens makes it very exceptionnal, so bravo!

A visitor from Italy posted Sun September 11, 2005:
The ability of the photographer to foresee the position of the aircraft when crossing and and the clean shut.

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 11, 2005:
You won't see this to often, a quiet country scene about to be shattered by a deafening thunder!

A visitor from Canada posted Sun September 11, 2005:
Composure, people, road, and planes low level.

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 11, 2005:
Right place at the right time!!

A visitor from Mexico posted Sun September 11, 2005:
I think this guy was very lucky for being there and take a shot at the right moment.

A visitor from Costa Rica posted Sun September 11, 2005:
Good photo, congratulations.

A visitor from Canada posted Sun September 11, 2005:
Now that is "LOW".

A visitor from Canada posted Sun September 11, 2005:
What an excellent reaction the photographer had.

A visitor from New Zealand posted Sun September 11, 2005:
Definitely not something you see every day, great work getting this photo!

A visitor from Germany posted Sun September 11, 2005:
Hit the road Jack!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun September 11, 2005:
With a 50mm lens! the mind boggles.

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 10, 2005:
Pretty neat.why so many spectators? Showboating?

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 10, 2005:
Amazing shot!

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 10, 2005:
What an incredible shot. I miss Gilze!

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 10, 2005:
Can't believe people could be in this close contct with this aircraft?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat September 10, 2005:
A great 'opportunity' image, Lieuwe, you are to be congratulated. Wonder what state the pilots pants were in !!!

A visitor from Germany posted Sat September 10, 2005:
That's a kind of scary view, but much spectacular at the same time! Excellent shot!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat September 10, 2005:
RAF pilots - best in the world. The photo is not technically great, but the atmosphere it creates is fantastic.

A visitor from Australia posted Sat September 10, 2005:
You can almost hear the PNF saying F*********** power power power

A visitor from Germany posted Sat September 10, 2005:
OMG - SXM is nothing against this
but a pretty old shot

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat September 10, 2005:
Eek! That has to be the lowest aircraft pictured taken near a public area. Incredible!
