Love the 747 sooooooooooo much!!!!! it's a absolute stunner

A visitor from Jamaica posted Mon November 26, 2007:
My baby!! I'm not a fan of grey but United make it look great. With this colour scheme, it took me about 3 days to complete a drawing I was doing for this aircraft in a similar angle. But it was worth every minute. Nice shot.

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 5, 2006:
Great job! i like the paint scheme of United Airlines. it looks like his tail is near the ground, but it is just a normal takeoff.

A visitor from United States posted Wed December 28, 2005:
"When I saw the preview I thought it was another "Oops" pic."
yes, at first glance I thought there'd been a miscalculation during loading ... all the heaviest passengers at the back, something like that.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue December 27, 2005:
I think they have to look at the weight and balance,, this loadcontroller was very bad:P
nice picture,,:D

A visitor from Finland posted Tue December 27, 2005:
It looks super loaded

A visitor from United States posted Mon December 26, 2005:
Nice photo. But for those speculating on a near tail strike, it's just the angle and shadow that make it look close. Actually, this is a normal takeoff for a heavy weight -400.

A visitor from France posted Mon December 26, 2005:
Great shot but I'll love more with the new paint scheme!!!

A visitor from Mexico posted Mon December 26, 2005:
A few inches more and... BUM, a tail strike. It really looks like this 747 is draging its tail. What a shot!

A visitor from Spain posted Mon December 26, 2005:
Great shoot, very clear and focused and close to tail-strike

A visitor from Costa Rica posted Mon December 26, 2005:
I love close to tailstrike rotations! And this one is really a close call. Sweet shot!

A visitor from Korea, Republic Of posted Mon December 26, 2005:
You almost got it N197UA.

A visitor from United States posted Mon December 26, 2005:
When I saw the preview I thought it was another "Oops" pic.

But still great shot, looks very nice.

5/5

A visitor from United States posted Mon December 26, 2005:
Nice plane but sfo needs to be improved

A visitor from Finland posted Sun December 25, 2005:
Looks almost as a tailstrike. You have finnish lastname :) Wähämäki. Nice!

A visitor from - posted Sun December 25, 2005:
Now that's close!

A visitor from Poland posted Sun December 25, 2005:
A very nice photo !!!

A visitor from Malaysia posted Sun December 25, 2005:
Intriguing picture! Definitely not a tail strike. Rotation or V(to)?

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 25, 2005:
That's why i love my home town airport-SFO!!!!!

A visitor from Canada posted Sun December 25, 2005:
The lighting and agle really makes this rotation shot brillant :D

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 25, 2005:
Amazing angle!WOW!

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 25, 2005:
I don't get it...is it tail rear touching the ground or something?

A visitor from Saudi Arabia posted Sun December 25, 2005:
Really it is great shot

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 25, 2005:
Beautiful shot. Shows how majestic the 747 still is. Ugly livery from United as usual.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun December 25, 2005:
Looks like a tail strike at a first glance!

A visitor from Romania posted Sun December 25, 2005:
Tail heavy???? :-))

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 25, 2005:
This is a beautiful plane. Great Angle, during rotation. =)

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 25, 2005:
Right before the touchdown!

A visitor from Switzerland posted Sun December 25, 2005:
