Flight BA43 from London Heathrow is now arriving into Cape Town. Not the best kind of weather, overcast clouds covering most parts of Cape Town although Table mountain (1085m/3559ft) seen on to the left is high enough to stand tall over the clouds. Thanks for a very enjoyable flight BA!

The mountain is very cool-looking, but I just can't get over the wing! Don't you just love the sheer size of those triple-slotted flaps?
And the high-speed aileron is very nice; it really shows the angle of the wing!
Fantastic photo.

Outstanding picture! Great lighting, and the perfect angle to capture the flaps. You got my vote!

Awesome photo.
Great lighting, and contrasts.
The clouds give the photo a real great atmosphere.
I love the flaps on the 747 when they are extended, it makes the wing look so fragile, yet so powerful!
Great shot!

Lovely pic! As someone else said, that is a superb shot of the 744 wing - really shows off the flaps and ailerons. Beautiful!

That's the best "flap" shot I've seen so far!

( Why I always sit just behind the wing; I love t watch the flaps move around )
