Nice shot! I like the hair of the guy blowing in the wind and the easy face of the man on the backseat...

Greeeeeeeeeeeeaaaat capture!

Tack sharp (the 400mm f/5.6L USM is told to be so :-)) and the face of the guy in the backseat is funny. Also, the blowing hair of the pilot looks cool.

5 stars from here!

Beautiful! Hard to tell who is flying this machine. The one in the front looks like he is enjoying a rock concert, the one in the back is a tourist guide.

I've heard about 'hairy' landings, now at last I know I know what they are! Seriously though, this is a superb shot, man and machine as seldom seen....well done!

I love the look of the dude in back. He's like, "I wonder if I left the water running back at the house..." LOL Nice photo. :)

The hot pilot. Looks like Jim Morrison in the Doors. Shame about the old geezer in the back. But perhaps that's you. Oops. It might help the old geezer to know I am 60 (Jim Morrison was my heyday!)
I do know Tim the pilot- he very kindly flirts with me!
