The presence of secondary aircraft and a neat looking background make this picture more than just your standard landing shot.

I like the way the speed of the A320 is captured. What made me look, however, is the KC10 parked in the back.

Nice shot . In Vietnam, hard to get a good spot for taking pics .

1. Perspective: The coast, the tanker, the angle the aircraft is seen.
2. Timing: The weels of the aircraft are only a few centimeters above the tarmac - a rare sight, frozen in time.

Absolute (lucky!) perfection in capturing the nanosecond before main gear contact ~ and almost right on the TDZ markings too! Great work by both Miguel and the TAP crew!

Everything is right. The weather, the background, the USAF plane and the commercial airplane. The Air Portugal crews have great experience in landing at Funchal. Years ago TAP lost an airplane at this airport.

One of the good highlights of the photo is the background with the 767 'n' the sea . Also appealing is the angle of the shot,and touchdown is a really a very graceful part of the flight .

The combination of the landing aircraft, the parking-one and the mountain is simply fantastic.

The Landscape is beautiful. The timing of the shot is just unique, look at the wheels, they are still in the air. The airplane is about 3 fingers from toutchdown.

Good angle , aircraft takes up just a nice portion of the entire image. Good background setting. Also managed to catch the craft just milliseconds from touchdown

An instant classic. The close proximity of the Air Portugal's tires show your skill in timing, and your ability to do so while keeping both aircraft in the frame is stunning.

Fantastic timing on this fairly close up photo of the A320 landing at Funchal. The US Air Force DC-10 in the background is a unique contrast to the colorful livery of TAP.

This picture is great because of the United States Air Force KC-10. Thats what we call them in the Air Force. It looks like its from McGuire AFB, NJ. Where I live.
