Even though the photograph is quite grainy I can only imagine the drama of the situation. I love images that captures the essence of the moment. Brilliant

A 10. I know the shot shows a bit of grain but I would like to see any other Airliners.net'er do a better job catching that so quickly. Sometimes the drama of the shot overshadows its quality and this is one of those times. Now only if I had a webcam of heathrow at this angle...
