Wow! is that a model 747 balanced on the nose? G-VWOW, VS29, departs Rwy 26L for Barbados Grantley Adams as sistership, G-VLIP is on short final from Barbados operating VS38.

It's interesting that you mention that one is heading to Barbados and the other one is returning from Barbados. Heh. A bit like a tag-team match in wrestling, I should say.

Amazing. Really detailed with flaps and the slants clearly visible while doing their job.

You can see G-VLIP correcting probably due to crosswinds.

Excellent shot showing wind condition of the day, the landing 747 is crabbing a bit to the left while the taking off 747 is pushed a bit to its right by the wind. 5 stars!
