This is one of the best pics. The Guy on the Motocycle must speed up if he doesn't want to be eat by the propeller.

Great picture, full of detail. Can the author elaborate on its meaning? Why is that airliner taxiing on a motor road?

Yeah, the Belgian police decided to battle the speedfans by buying Turbo Commanders..
They both can do a wheelie, but only the TC will take off :-)
Great shot, Tom, It

Wonderful shot. What annoys me is when authors just assume that we'll know whats going on in the picture. Could someone just explain whats happening?

WHAT IS GOING ON; there is a road next to the airport (also accessible for cars) where planes can taxi to several hangars. It's a fantastic GA airport, you can take photo's from really close! Simon Vancoillie

5 stars for this incredible shot.

In fact at this airport you can acces a part with is not airside and this road is a taxiway too. When you are in a aircraft, you have to ask the tower to open a fence to go on the road. I met a truck once on the road facing me ^^. It's a little bit narrow, only 14m when your wings are below the fence.

The dude on the bike is thinking, "Hmmm, did the GPS say to turn left or right back there?"

Look, you could do a gear up landing in that thing and the props wouldn't hit. That's a bonus.
