Remark Photographer
05-5140 (cn F-147/P-140) Just prior to this pass I made a joke about wanting to see the Globemaster do a minimum radious turn. My jaw dropped when it happened...dirty. [D200 + 300 F4 AF-S]

Awsome shot! where was this guy? perfect.

A visitor from United States posted Tue June 22, 2010:
Great shot!

A visitor from - posted Sun December 20, 2009:
Great picture! I have to correct the comment below though. The right fairing is larger not because one pack is larger than the other. It is larger because the APU is housed in the right forward fairing.

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri August 21, 2009:
Perfect catch, and very impressive steady hand of the photografer.

A visitor from - posted Sun November 16, 2008:
PF: "Gear up!! Turn 'n burn baby ..." Thanks for the awesome pic!!

A visitor from United States posted Sun November 9, 2008:
Also, the right fairing is different beacuse the right A/C pack is bigger than the left pack.

A visitor from Croatia posted Wed October 22, 2008:
Amazing pic

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 16, 2008:
The reason the fairing is different sized, is because that's where the APU is located.

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 3, 2008:
Hey guys, what a coincidence seeing this bird here. I did a strut bleed on this very aircraft at March ARB not too long ago as part of a #2 home station check.

A visitor from Germany posted Fri October 3, 2008:
God I love this plane!

A visitor from - posted Fri October 3, 2008:
Words cannot describe my reaction 2 this shot...but i can try, splendid ...wow...breath taking, literally.

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 3, 2008:
That is so awesome!!!!!!!

A visitor from Germany posted Fri October 3, 2008:
What a perfect shot

A visitor from Ireland posted Thu October 2, 2008:
Clinically sharp view from directly underneath, a great catch considering the speed of the subject matter .

A visitor from - posted Mon September 29, 2008:
Simply Outsanding!!! Could any one comment why is there is such a size difference between the left and right landing gear fairings? does the larger one house the RAT as is the case with the A-380 under wing flap fairing?

A visitor from - posted Sun September 28, 2008:
Outstanding, didn't know it retracted its gear in such a "folding" way

A visitor from - posted Sun September 28, 2008:
A look that I never imagined!

A visitor from Greece posted Sun September 28, 2008:
Superb! Can we have more, please?

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat September 27, 2008:
Great picture! I didn't even realize it was a Globemaster until I read the captions. Such an unusual angle!

A visitor from - posted Sat September 27, 2008:
A minimum radius turn WITH the gear retracting! Absolutely amazing photo. This is the epitome of the phrase "right place at the right time."

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat September 27, 2008:
This is spectacular.

A visitor from - posted Sat September 27, 2008:
Now Dat's an amazing pic!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat September 27, 2008:
