A different perspective for LAX. Air India makes its way into 24R with some flap condensation. Thanks go to Ralph Duenas for letting me borrow his 15mm fisheye.

painstaking shot..should have been waiting for the apt time to shoot this frame...perhaps a masterpiece of a 747 on flight..

I love this photo because it's just so detailed even though it's not a close-up. i have never seen the bottom of an airplane so sophisticaced. also the wings are so cool, probably because of their rudder. i don't know if it's a Boeing 747 because of its four engines but the aircraft seems very complicated with all the parts to it and all the details in the picture. i just love the picture and it's the coolest aircraft picture i have ever seen. i love airplanes!

Fantastic photo! Interesting that from this angle you can't see the winglets, and thus it looks like a 200 or 300 series. But VT-ESM clearly is a 400 series giant! Well done!!!

To me this photo is excellent because you can see the bottom of the B747-437 in so much detail. the wings look so cool, mostly because of their flaps. you can even see some of the exhaust from the wings. the bottom of the 747 is so sophiticated and complicated! this picture is so cool and is one of my favorites. i love the 747!^_^
