Great!!!! And totally awesome!

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 3, 2011:
Is it taking off or landing?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 3, 2011:
Wow one of the best photos on a.net! 5*

A visitor from - posted Mon May 30, 2011:
The clarity is so good in this photo that we can see detail in the vortex coming off the flap.

A visitor from Germany posted Mon May 30, 2011:
Looks like it's dipping only one toe into the pool to check if its cold.

Yes, that's serious wing flex!!!

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri January 14, 2011:
Is fantastic to catch a moment like this one! Bien Diego!

A visitor from Mauritius posted Fri December 24, 2010:
This is the prima of flight...landing touchdown! Wonderful timing, wonderful contrast, wonderful feeling!

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 30, 2010:
Fantastic catch! Regards from Ovneuilles

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 22, 2010:
Even in nasty weather the Boeing 747 outshines the Airbus A-380. 40 plus years of elegance, what a fantastic design.

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 17, 2010:
Rain, and the rare East Ops. Nice!

A visitor from Guatemala posted Fri September 17, 2010:

A visitor from - posted Fri September 17, 2010:
Definitely landing - the position of the main gear gives it away, IMO.

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 17, 2010:
Beautiful bird and timing

A visitor from - posted Fri September 17, 2010:
So it does rain in california. fantastic pic

A visitor from - posted Fri September 17, 2010:
This is a landing. You're looking from the south via TWY T. Beyond the RWY TWY H9 is coming up from the right sight. Beautiful image!

A visitor from India posted Fri September 17, 2010:
This is landing...not taking off...the position of the landing gear + flaps + angle of attack of the nose clearly show that its LANDING...cheers

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 17, 2010:
7R at taxiway Tango means the plane is landing. (Or rotated in less than 1000 feet, your choice)

A visitor from Australia posted Fri September 17, 2010:
It is looks to be landing due to the flaps and the angle of attack. You can see the water vapour because the flaps are creating lift on the wing, and it is flowing downward because that is the direction the airflow travels after it has passed the wing (again due to the angle of attack in the flare).

A visitor from - posted Fri September 17, 2010:
This a/c is landing...notice how flaps and slats are deployed in landing configuration. Also, there is no spray behind the wheels, indicating the a/c is touching down.

A visitor from Italy posted Fri September 17, 2010:
Im wondering about the massive Wing Flex. Just incredible.

A visitor from India posted Thu September 16, 2010:
The trail of vapour from the wings seems to be rising up from level. In a landing, wouldn't it be the other way round i.e. in the downward direction?

Fantastic shot!

A visitor from United States posted Thu September 16, 2010:
It is landing! Look at the flaps!

A visitor from Germany posted Thu September 16, 2010:
Great timing!

A visitor from United States posted Thu September 16, 2010:
I believe she is landing, not taking off, the angle is too low to be taking off

A visitor from United States posted Thu September 16, 2010:
For this shot, it's more like "runway is there, FLARE!" ... oh and FANTASTIC PHOTO DIEGO!!! Keep up the great batch of photos, me gusta!
