I made a rookie mistake while taking this shot. Standing to the left of the blast fence, I noticed the first officer waving at me. It turns out he was trying to wave me out of the way! About 5 seconds later they began to turn the aircraft and throttled up the right engine. It nearly knocked me off my feet, and blew dust and rocks all over me! I love how this shot shows how massive the winglets are as well.
