Beautiful shot, exactly the sort of thing I attempted with absolutely no success at LHR on the 6th. Nice one!

It catches this aircraft at it's most vulnerable point and shows the raw power at lift off.

A perfect example of the wings doing exactly what they were designed to do! The varying tones of the clouds in the background add much more to the photo than had it been a solid sky. Well done.

Quite obviously someone knew what they were doing when they took this panorama. Nice green grass and can't you feel the rumble as that beast lifts off.

FANTASTIC! This picture shows just why the 747 is the Queen of the Sky. The A380 just doesn't look this magnificent and it never will. It's all in the shape of the design.

The 747 will never grow old. To think that the design goes back 40 plus years. Makes me proud to be an American. The power this photo captures is priceless.
