FLY601 turning final for runway 18C. Recleared from 18L to 18C quite late during the flight forced this sharp turn. Flyme flew to Amsterdam during a period of 5 month during the spring / summer of 2006.

The shot is perfect but who is flying the plane? Both pilots have at least one hand on the yoke :-)

Absolutely fantastic. Everything is in focus and an exciting situation.

The FO has the control anyway. He's got the more stable grip on the joke, his FD is master, his AP is engaged, and I think he's about to disengage the AT. In that case the strange thing is, that he does'nt disengage it on the throttle.

As i remember , we do a 15 degrees turn when coming in and descending, but this looks more than 15 to me... are you sure dude u are descending to land and turning ? watch out ur wing , its gonna touch the tree, look out ...

Looks as if the captain is a bit too cautious. If I was flying the left seat here (where the 1st officer is hand-flying the aircraft), I wouldn't have my hand on the yoke. I would be ready to quickly intervene if necessary, but I wouldn't have my hand on it. A leader's goal should always be to instill and to build confidence in others (with safety always being the overall theme, of course).

Amazing shot! People who commented before: I think the captain just used the ATC button on his yoke, that's why he has his hand on it.

The F/O is not about to disengage the autothrottle, he probably just rest is hand above the speed knob as he is reducing the speed..Really nice pic.

I think it's an outstanding photo, I also love the wide view thru the windows and the 'eyebrows'. But I think that you were recleared to 18C not from 18L but from 18R; I believe that landings on rwy 18L are prohibited, I've read so and also never seen it happen... maybe in very special circumstances it can happen but I don't know.
Also, it makes more sense since you are turning left here... if you go from 18L to 18C it would be more logical that you turn right.
