Boeing 747-400 (N450PA)


Standing near Northern Lights Boulevard at Ted Stevens International Airport as this Polar 747 took off.

Help me here. Flaps appear to be full down. Are you sure it's not landing.
Great shot the backdrop of the mountains and clouds.
And NO Ernst, it's taking off..if it were landing it would be in HUGE trouble as not much runway left after this shot.

If it is landing Ernst, to me, they are in trouble

The location given is a bit misleading. Northern Lights Blvd becomes Point Woronzof Road once you get west of Lake Hood Drive.

Nice picture, I've got many hours in that plane.

Definitely taking-off. The angle of attack is too acute for a landing approach; and yes, there is hardly any runway left...
