It is always delighted to see some snow on the undercarriage is blown off by the air stream. This UPS MD-11F is now leaving Anchorage from runway 32 with some interesting selection of cargo airplanes behinds. As this photograph was taken the moment after the sun broke through the peak of mountains, the orange hue gives us a warm atmosphere. In a reality, it is -9F (-22.8C) which makes me pretty cold; but, as you might know, I like crispy winter day so that I really enjoy what I am doing here!!

Such an amazing photo. You can actually feel the dew on the back of your neck, and smell the jet fuel, and feel the immense power of the 747 taking off. Simply stunning.

Super sharp. Photo speaks a thousands word.

By the way, it is a break dust, once pilot pull up the landing gear lever, automatic brakes stop the spinning wheels from damaging the landing gear bay inside the belly.
