Remark Photographer
PP-VQK (cn 48758/615) The MD-11 shows some special character and counts to my favorite type of ac. See in detail a back view of the rear engine. Can you too feel the charme of this work of art?

Great angle. Good light. Very different

A visitor from Malaysia posted Tue October 17, 2006:
How much heavy the rear section of MD 11, with his second engine. that's why MD 11 who converted to cargo aircraft always tipped at the airport.

A visitor from Germany posted Sat September 23, 2006:
Whatever...simply the best ....

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu August 31, 2006:
Yep, work of art states it all and this photo truly offers a perspective that only Tri jets can. What a great era of flight soon to be our past.

Indeed it looks like a wheel hub on the Chrysler Bldg.

A visitor from Brazil posted Fri May 26, 2006:
This shot deserves all superlatives a spotter can say. I had the opportunity of flying this very bird from MAO to GRU in nov/2004 (great and funny flight). Congratulations Mr. Schmidt !

A visitor from New Zealand posted Fri May 26, 2006:
Indeed the trijets are the most elegant airliners ever and the majestic MD-11 undoubtedly tops the list, Thumbs up for every airline who's still flying them and of course Mr. Schmidt who made this lovely shot!!
Regards from the city of sails...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri May 26, 2006:
Excellent shot of the Number 2 engine. Long live the MD-11.

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 26, 2006:
DUDE that is awesome!! Great angle... and yes, it is a shame that these are going away. Such a great sight!

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 26, 2006:
That is unique.

A visitor from Brazil posted Fri May 26, 2006:
Varig is just so great!

A visitor from Germany posted Fri May 26, 2006:
WAHNSINN! That's really the most stunning angle of view for an Aircraft Closeup I've ever seen! :-) Glückwunsch!

A visitor from - posted Fri May 26, 2006:
Enjoy the power!!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 25, 2006:
Magnificent! You can sense the power behind the most beautiful aircraft ever.

A visitor from Mexico posted Thu May 25, 2006:
Exelent shot!!

A visitor from Belgium posted Thu May 25, 2006:
Beauty!!! I love this angle. If all this planes will be retired it will be very sad for me. These planes look magnificant and are very powerfull. I love them... The most wonderfull plane in the world for me...

A visitor from Portugal posted Thu May 25, 2006:
They just dont make planes like this anymore do they......? Shame MD just "flew" into the ground, they made the best if not nearly the best planes around.....

A visitor from Mexico posted Thu May 25, 2006:
Yeah! It´s a very different way to contemplate the number three engine. So clean and shiny too. T.B.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu May 25, 2006:
Excelent photo!! This is the best angle of the MD-11 I have ever seen!


A visitor from United States posted Thu May 25, 2006:
Indeed a fantastic shot. I love these close-up, abstract photographs. A job well done Mr. Schmidt.

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu May 25, 2006:
Great Varig!!!

A visitor from Belgium posted Thu May 25, 2006:
Wonderful picture. Looks like an art Deco statue on the Chrysler building.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu May 25, 2006:
Magnificent photo at such a great angle! Very nice job

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 25, 2006:
Awesome photo which looks even better when you enlarge. It does look a little cheeky, if you know what I mean!

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 25, 2006:
I like this one because it is a different kind of shot.

A visitor from Denmark posted Thu May 25, 2006:
That one went straight to my desktop.

A visitor from France posted Thu May 25, 2006:
The MD11 shown from this angle looks spectacular. What an amazing aircraft !

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu May 25, 2006:
Outstanding! Exactly the reason why this is my favourite A/C too; such a shame Boeing pulled the plug!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed May 24, 2006:
This is art. Symmetry and reflections add to the magic of the picture.

A visitor from France posted Wed May 24, 2006:
As a technician I must say this picture creates something like respekt. Not fear but respect. I once got nearly sucked by an engine. The jetblast isn't too healthy too. So let's tick our hat to this great shot!
