Just a couple days ago, I commented to another FA member that there are certain photographers who certainly know that their pics are ultra-outstanding so I never post comments to them to tell them something they already know. You are one of those photogs, John. When it comes to pics posted by you and several other contributors (I could list them but they know who they are), the FA "star" rating system is unbelievably inadequate. Pics from several US contributors like yourself and from some overseas contributors like Uwe are automatically worth the max number of stars and almost all of them are worth at least twice the max. So I just instantly give every new pic a "5" and then I kick back and enjoy the photo. But I do want to make a one-time observation here: there will never be another aircraft that can ever take the title of "Queen Of The Skies" away from the B747. And if anyone ever publishes a "Greatest Photos of The Queen Of The Skies" book (or CD or DVD), some of your 747 photos da-n sure deserve to be included in it. And I'd da-n sure buy a copy!! As always, stunning shots, John.

I have to completely agree with Gary 110%...many publish photos here, but folks should look at the photo's you, Uwe and a number of others post, and see why they are actually worthy of 10 stars..you captured the essence of the complete bird prowling along the ground...Please keep them coming John.

i could not agree more with Gary. This is brilliant. The monochrome effect is stunning and I would give more than 5 stars for this one mate

Am I imagining it or are the tell-tales painted on the compressor hubs all lined up at the 12 o'clock position on all 4 engines? Clearly the engines are running because the jet wash is clearing the pavement behind the aeroplane.
How did he do that?
The Boeing 747 is my favourite to fly, just check out how happy I am in the thumbnail!

This is like the opening scene from the Coen brothers' "Fargo" with the Cutlass Ciera in the swirling snow. It's cinematic!
