For a minute I thought that this was a hotel situated near the end of a departure runway and was about to book a room!!

Your photo is a "Once every 10 Year Fabulous Shot................

Everything came in to play for a phenomonal photo.

Thankyou Ken! Everything really did come into play! This year a C-17 did the display but nothing like what beautiful VH-OEH did last year!! Didn't get a single photo similar...

The Spirit of Australia in all its glory,✈ before I knew wtf was happening here I thought it must be having landing gear problems and doing a low pass so ppl on the ground can visually check if the landing gear is down. But the turn angle was way to sporty for that... Anyway nice photo 📷 pity it wasn't an A380 just for the wow factor..
Claudia Santos
Passionate about those birds! Thanx for sharing, Graham!

Thankyou James Moreton, the photo has stumped a few people. I am glad you like it! The wow factor was right up there but this past year I was hoping for an A380 instead got a measly display from a C-17 which didn't come close to the 747.

Thankyou also Claudia Santos!

I can't take my eyes off this photo... Definitely one of my favourite aviation photographs ever! A great capture of the 747 in flight!
Andrew Hunter-GrahamPhoto Uploader
Thnkyou Grace Payne, really appreciate the positive comment. I am so glad that you like it!! I fear that it was a once in a life time opportunity, as C-17's have done the flyby over the past two years. For the record, the C-17 flyby's have nothing on the display of this 747!!

not video?

Stunning capture, Andrew. Do you perhaps remember who came third in the race that day? :)
