Remarks: SODPROPS in action at Sydney airport with the Qantas A380 on short final for Rwy 34 left just as the Air NZ A320 becomes airborne from Rwy 16 left. SODPROPS = Simultaneous Opposite Direction Parallel Runway Operations. 1600px.
Remarks: The taxi-lights of Singapore Airlines' newest A380 blaze abright as she prepares to commence taxi to RWY02L for departure to Zürich as SQ346 at the tail end of the midnight departure rush at 0140LT. In the background, a London-bound Qantas Superjumbo, QF31, lumbers past on TWY WP, also enroute to RWY02L for departure.
Remarks: As the sun goes down, the AA standby in the remote area before departure for the night flight toward Miami. In the background the runway 15/33, the mountains that surround the airport and the bridge over Guanabara Bay, postcard in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Not bad for my picture number 100!
Remarks: LH804 from FRA to ARN on "Nördlingen", seat 29A. Beautiful view of the city of Stockholm after the sun set. Viewers familiar with Stockholm will recognize Södermalm ("South Of Stockholm", the large-ish long island on the top-left), the area around the Central station (the concentrated lights just over the wing), and Gamla Stan (the "Old City", the small island to the right of the winglet). I tried a few times to take this shot, finally the stars aligned that day and the sky was crystal clear.
Remarks:Yemenia 7000 seen gliding over the 405 Freeway on finals for RWY25L after a long haul direct from Paris Charles de Gaulle. As you can probably appreciate, this moment was quite an experience, one which I can never top or duplicate by fluke as it happened. Funnily enough, this is the first time I have ever seen a 747SP fly! This photo is dedicated to my good friend Jorge for his friendly hospitality during my stay and Steven for the heads up!

Remarks: I sat of first row, middle seat on Winair PJ-WIL aircraft. When the pilot align with the runway, I loosed the seat belt, a lot, to get high enough to see through the first officer's window, already a little inside the cockpit (no cockpit doors on the DHC-6 Twin Otters), focus, shoot, sit, fasted seat belts, felt the touch down. After landing, I was even short of breath after such a quick gymnastic. At least I get to provide a different view of Maho Beach and Juliana Airport. Too bad seconds before all this it rained and the windshield was not so clear.
