This shot (for me anyway) is indeed poetry in motion! I love almost any shot up close and personal involving my favourite aircraft, the B744. I do have a soft spot for this particular aircraft though, because it features in in the CX DVD published by ITVV with captain Don Grange at the controls flying that famous right curved approach and landing at Kai Tak Airport.
