    That lift off is impressive, clear and sharp.

    You weren't harassed by security for taking photos of plans at an airport? :er:

    No hehe... they even built us a "spotters wall" above the fence for that very purpose! Lots of photographic opportunities as im sure you can imagine!

    Thanks for the comments! Yeah, no.2 and 3.; the aircraft was crossing the road from main runway to the hangers. There are barriers to stop traffic but you can pass them on foot and get some good angles. It doesnt happen everday so when you see something like this you start running to find a position! Its also a good idea to keep an eye on the wings when trying to get a good shot!!
