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]

A minimum radius turn WITH the gear retracting! Absolutely amazing photo. This is the epitome of the phrase "right place at the right time."

Great picture! I didn't even realize it was a Globemaster until I read the captions. Such an unusual angle!

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?

Clinically sharp view from directly underneath, a great catch considering the speed of the subject matter .

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.

The reason the fairing is different sized, is because that's where the APU is located.

Also, the right fairing is different beacuse the right A/C pack is bigger than the left pack.

Perfect catch, and very impressive steady hand of the photografer.

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.
