You had a good vantage point in shooting the 747-400. Your note also is useful, as I know now that in 1983, the only time I flew into Hong Kong, it must have been into the Kai Tak Airport. I remember flying in virtually between high rise office buildings.

Very nice capture of this 747 against the beautiful blue sky and gorgeous clouds. I wish I saw in person the NASA 747 that was carrying the shuttle yesterday. What a wonderful sight that would have been. Good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

The emerald green mountains in the background make a refreshing contrast to the concrete infrastructure of the airport. An airplane photo is always a welcome sight in my eyes.
