Traveling at the same rate of speed this small airplane landed on a makeshift landing pad on top of the pickup and stayed on it for about 500 feet then took-off again. Don’t try this at home!

Good catch of this dangerous action with the light blur giving the sense of movement. This sure is stuff for pros.

This seems in a way the same idea as an aircraft carrier, but maybe less suitable for warfare. An amazing trick anyway, and thanks for the advice :-).

Another photo with great timing, this is a cirkus show :))

You always have impressive aircraft shots but this one is a real special event. Quite a stunt, I think I haven't seen such on TV. Colourful aircraft fits well for such a stunt. I also like the red sign in foreground.

An orginal way of transportation, a little plane on a pick up
Superb colors, good depth, clear shot
Have a nice evening

A very nice action shot - boys stuff - I wonder how fast they are moving & how does the plane take off from the top of a utility - ?

Don't worry, neither that plane nor that truck would fit in my home, so there is no danger that I might try it at home!
This is quite an accomplishment: I know how hard it is to get such fast-moving objects into the frame without major defects. This is well done!
Now if it were a mere landscape, I would tell you that the red sign in the foreground is a distraction. But with moving targets, I can't be that choosy. I also like the fact that you were able to capture the heat shimmer.

You have layered this shot perfectly with the sign, truck and the plane. Well captured moment. Amazing stunt and thanks for the warning :-)

What a stunt!!! The plane above the pick-up truck. You are right do not try this stunt at home. Excellent action shot spot on metering and vibrant colour hues. Well Done

It's a known stunt, Eleu, but not an easy task to take picture of.
Precise moment collected well, desert scenery with notable heat coming above the tarmac.
