Ha, really respect the size of the queen of the skies, i fly a 737-300W/winglets for AA, and when i was trained on it i thought it was hugs untill i saw a British Airways 747-400

I love this shot. What a fantastic size comparison.

Haha, check out that difference in size!! I believe that if the guys on the "David" had been right on the timing, their plane could have started take-off and could have passed underneath the 747!!! (oh no wait on, they could be sucked towards the engines and anyway, they would only have a split second to be outta that place, but I mean the size, you know...)

Just the sheer size of the thing would almost make you wet your pants! This is probably the best size comparison of aircraft I have seen yet!

Amazing, the contrast scares me from the picture alone. And there are no AA 737-300s so someone is lying.

What a sight that would be to have this MUCH larger aircraft land that close to you in such a small airplane!

Well, I've been in the exact same position as the little GA aircraft(except not on ELLX and in a C172) and I can tell you it's even more amazing when you're that close! You can actually feel the 747 passing as it shakes your airplane from the air displacement and the vibration from the engines thrust! :)
