Mike, this by far has to be the wonderfulest photo that I have seen taken at JFK! With the silver, red, white, and bule!

Best angle on a 747-400 I have seen in a while. Best feeling in the world is the last five days before Christmas in Manhattan. Garth - ZA

Great angle for the photo....brings out the size of the aircraft...also not a perspective most of us are able to view aircraft parked at the gate....

The angle of which the photo was taken and also the fact that it was taken during winter. The aircraft looks great in snow!

The winter snow makes it a great shot. Would love some more of this type of shot.

Superb, It's been taken at a wonderful angle and gives a true representation of her actual size. I also love that snug feeling you get when seeing a picture in the snow in wonderful light,

Well done Michael

Beautiful angle. Blue sky provides excellent background. Snow on the ground reflects perfectly on the silver body.
