Long exposure picture during pushback operation. Please doublecheck you can unattach the camera from the plane before trying a picture like this one!

Very nice! A very funny coincidence is that when I look out of the office window right now, I can see EC-KOH standing about 20 meters away!

You mean the plane could have lifted with the camera attached to it? Makes me wonder how legal that was...

Great prospective and very rare!! Reminds of my days as a baggage handler for NWA and pushing out their A319/320's!! I would guess the camera was hung from the GPU cord/intercomm panel door.

Nothing less than 5 stars and a PCA from me. Amazed the push truck vibrations didn't ruin the long exposure. Brilliant photo! Johnny Kristensen

Super idea if management lets you do it. Otherwise, fantastic shot with movement motion :)

Many thanks. I really do appreciate your comments, votes and your warm welcome.

I had to test the attachment of the camera a couple of times before taking the picture just to assure it could be easily unattached. Of course it's not legal to take off with a camera attached, but I could have been into serious problems if the flight is delayed due to a difficult unattachment. The camera was attached to the a/c between the GPU door and the nose landing gear door using high speed tape and under maintenence supervision. As a fact I used the GPU door to wrap the camera strap just in case of a tape loosening. The crew was informed as well because they'll see me after pushback with the steering bypass pin on my left hand... and some strange thing on the right hand wrapped on metallic tape. By the way I used plastic film to avoid annoying glue stains on my camera and a simple erasing rubber to tilt the frame a little lower
Thanks once more for all your warm comments. Stil
