Superb lighting, crisp and sharp focusing, great colours..and the reflections...Excellent!!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 8, 2006:
I use to work for IAS at IAH in 1999, and many times
we had two AN-124's parked near the control tower; one was the Antonov, the other was usually the Air
Foale (or something like that). Since they were one
of our clients, I had the chance to go up to the flight deck for a look around once; never forgot that!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue August 29, 2006:
