Oh Varig, why did you dropped us???

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 6, 2013:
Impressive, basics, centered well, with attention to details, being fairly close to object, with buildings focused fairly clear for a fast object fly by. Original or retouched, very impressive for any first time friend seeing this or some of us who always appreciate these of these kind of things. Some Veterans here still searching to refine the right ones and affordable to help the cargo industry and humanitarian help with innovative fuels as the U.S. Dept. of Trans. recently admits "Hydrogen home made fuel' (water electrolysis = 'H'), is cleaner, safer adding time or distance to any type operating combustible motor".
The world's rural areas rely on this but not on news, same as recent genetic modified organics recently billions seeing a pubic awareness demanding the proven dangerous foods be stopped. Thanks Airliners net, professionals and all, for the years of helping us share to learn more ways here to help others & help return better original qualities.

And yet, it is gone... Awesome shot, awful fate.

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 23, 2009:
While there is nothing more beautiful than a floating 747, seeing a VARIG aircraft landing in Hong Kong perfectly brings life to the magic of Flight. From Brazil to China. How exciting!
