was surely running the show that day!
rotating from rwy 25R
unfriendly clouds can be friendly too; flight LH600 to Teheran
the closer the better the shapes of the MD-11 are
as the city is waking up, the flight VN37 from Hanoi is about to complete its long journey
What an amazing airplane..
having a day-long break on the south apron
approaching rwy 25L...
good long body, hard to cover even with a wide-angle lens
Taking off from 7L
taxiing to the start position on rwy 25R
I always loved the way the gears are retracted on a Tupolev; plus this powerful sound - truly a classic!
