A lot of planning went into this shot, but well worth it. Straight down onto a Kalitta 747 as she comes in over the threshold at ANC. Photo taken while hanging out of the helicopter with ATC and Pilot permission!

Congrats Ryan great efforts by you, chopper pilot. thanks to ATC for their nice decision to allow for this shot. What was the chopper height from ground ? also how much Zoom you used ?

Thank you so much. Definitely a huge shoutout to ATC for making it happen. We were 2,000AGL and I was using a 70-200 2.8 on my d850:)

Wow, 200mm from 2000 feet away? Seems quite short! But great shot anyway.
