I'd say you are just as close to a departing aircraft at Manchester's 24L runway - maybe even closer. Granted, not directly behind, not so much sun and sand, less jetblast, less sea breeze, less views out to the beautiful azure blue sea, but just as close Big grin .

Another item crossed off on my "to do list" before I die. Big grin

Try standing with your head set at the nose wheel of a 747 with all four engines at take off power, the trees behind horizontal from the force and just the brakes holding her back . . . . .. Now that a buzz I will never forget Big grin

There is a fine line between a picture and a photo. The latter seems to be disappearing.
