The shot of my career. A Cargolux 747-8F gliding in over the threshold in ANC. Photo taken from a helicopter and if you look closely, the plane is still about 50 feet up in the air.

Great capture. it appears to be lining up but only after reading the description one knows its gliding/crabbing over the threshold moments away from touch down.

It was a little high on the approach (late touchdown) so it was between 30 and 50 I would say! Thank you so much
