A visitor from France posted Fri January 21, 2011:
Five stars! Very nice shot!

A visitor from Italy posted Tue September 7, 2010:
It's actually a -300 series, not a -600 because there are only two wheels in the middle not four.

A visitor from Spain posted Mon August 9, 2010:
Perfect picture at the perfect moment! It's amazing to see those heavy's making their way through the clouds. 5* Congratulations!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri July 30, 2010:
That is amazing! truly a wonderful shot^^by the way, this is a -600 version, has 12 wheels, not only ten like the -300, look closely at the nose part^^

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue June 22, 2010:
Great pic of the vortices behind the two approaching

A visitor from - posted Fri June 18, 2010:

5* shot bro...good ctach...

A visitor from United States posted Mon January 26, 2009:
I love the two heavies together in one incredible shot! Lighting is perfect, the 747 is just peering over the shoulder, like was said below, watching the child test out his wings.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat December 20, 2008:
Thanks a lot for many kind comments, I am glad you like it :)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed December 3, 2008:
Great Pic. It is an A340-300 as the main landing gear only has10 wheels as aposed to 12 on the -600. Well done. It is interesting how the 747 is so farr behind yet still apears bigger. :)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue September 23, 2008:
Beautiful Shot.
By the way, that A340 is on finals, so that's why the gear is extended ;).

A visitor from Australia posted Sun August 3, 2008:
Odd how the Gear hasn't been retracted

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 31, 2008:
Grandfather heavy watching child heavy test out his wings :) 5*

Outstanding photograph!

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 16, 2008:
All that needs to be said is, amazing

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon July 14, 2008:
Very interesting what happened to the cloud behind the Boeing 747-400 !

A visitor from United States posted Mon July 14, 2008:
Can you say "Caution wake-turbulance?"

Very nice capture of two very pretty birds.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon July 14, 2008:
Five Stars! This is really awesome, no question. I like the 744 most

A visitor from United States posted Mon July 14, 2008:
That is a very astonishing picture. The most interesting part is of the Boeing 747-400 and the beautiful swirls it created. I like how the aircraft silhouettes contrast from the sky.

A visitor from India posted Mon July 14, 2008:
Extraordinary Photo Greg. Thanks for Sharing Btw ; )
Cheers - Vishal Jolapara

A visitor from - posted Mon July 14, 2008:
ATC to 747 "Caution! wake turbulence", 747 to ATC "Excuse me? The wake is behind me" ! Silly joke aside, this is one special photograph! Thanks for sharing Gregory!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon July 14, 2008:
Wow amazing shot

A visitor from South Africa posted Mon July 14, 2008:
I want to give this one ten stars. An incredible sight. Is that the A340 300 though.. the 500 and this seven four would be beyond words.

A visitor from South Africa posted Mon July 14, 2008:
Now thats an awsome sight to see.

A visitor from United States posted Mon July 14, 2008:
The clouds almost look like they were painted. Amazing! The 747 shows the power and beauty of flight all at once.

A visitor from United States posted Mon July 14, 2008:
WOW! Gregory,that's just about perfect. Congrat's a 5-star from me.

A visitor from - posted Mon July 14, 2008:
Now, if you could just imagine a little 152 buzzing around. . .

A visitor from Canada posted Mon July 14, 2008:
Holy crap... wow... *****

A visitor from Germany posted Mon July 14, 2008:
Just wow... I never seen a shot showing this as beautiful as done here. Congrats!

A visitor from United States posted Mon July 14, 2008:
Are you freaking serious!?! amazing shot showing that these mighty beasts not only cut through our heavens, but interact in the graceful dance that is flight!

A visitor from Australia posted Mon July 14, 2008:
Great shot but I must admit I like the 774 behind even better any shots of that beauty

A visitor from Turkey posted Mon July 14, 2008:
It's an Airbus A340-3.. series. Also the turbulence of the jumbo is interesting.

A visitor from Germany posted Mon July 14, 2008:
5 Stars - no remark required obviuosly. My god what a foto. 340 and 744 swirling theire way - I just don't get how You did it.

A visitor from - posted Mon July 14, 2008:
This is a magnificent photo. The silhouettes and heart shaped wake these beautiful planes have left make this almost surreal. Very well done, and long live those beautiful 747s!

A visitor from United States posted Mon July 14, 2008:
2 generatinos of four holers and the hole they punched in the dramtic sky! Great composition and exposure.

A visitor from Spain posted Mon July 14, 2008:
Good shoot

A visitor from Finland posted Mon July 14, 2008:
Good, with a little bit more crop and aligning this would be a five star shot!

A visitor from Austria posted Sun July 13, 2008:
