Love this shot, makes the aircraft look so nimble

The detail is amazing, from the spinning turbines to the pilot and co-pilot in the cockpit. It must've taken some intestinal fortitude to capture this shot without cringing!

Nice shoot. Interesting tyres marks at the the end of the runway at the bottom of the picture

Nice photo! I always like shots from this angle as they tend to be pretty impressive. I must say that I like the KC-135 a lot better than the civilian version, the 707, even if it were only because of its bigger engines. I think those long narrow engines of the 707 look pretty bad, while these ones look really good on this bird (it's the same thing with the 737-200 and all later versions of the 737, compare the engines...).
Btw check out the rubber on the runway! I thought pilots were not allowed to do burnouts!!! ;)

This photo is amazing perfect angle and seeing the jet streams behind it showing how much thrust is behind that beast is amazing

I don't know if my eyes are tricking me or not, but it looks like the centrifugal force of the spinning tires is causing the main wheels to increase in diameter and shrink in their lateral dimensions.

This photo really illustrates the shallow climbout of the old KC135s, but one thing confuses me: why did this aircraft have the 717-148 designation? I understand the 717 part, but "48" is for Aer Lingus and I'd have noticed by now if they had inflight refuelling tankers!

The plane looks awesome with those CFM56's. Awesome!

Unusual and interesting! Very nice detail of the runway contour and tire scuff marks, in addition to the plane itself.

Feel as though I'm right there...can't you hear the whine of the engines? The anticipation of the gear doors about to open as this bird is moments from pulling in her feet and roar right on by. Magnificent and thank you for the nice photo!
