Very nice shot Trey! 5*s
I'm sure that this is a stupid question, but is he just lifting off, or just about to set down.
Thanks for putting up with a non-pilot stupid question.
Mark See
It's not really a stupid question as sometimes it can be hard to tell. Usually the giveaway is the flap setting. In this case it looks to be around 10 degrees which would be a takeoff setting. Another clue but can't always be trusted is the prop blur. During takeoff the engines are spinning a lot faster than during landing, so if this plane was landing then it wouldn't appear this blurred. However it also depends a lot on the shutter speed used to take the photo. Even an idle prop can look really blurred with a very low shutter speed, so that's why it can be used to help determine but can't be always trusted. Hope this helps :)
Either way, this is a remarkable picture just at the moment of lift-of (main gear just leaving the ground) or touch-down (main gear just about to touch down and spin up) and rates 5 stars either way.

Its a landing guys and thanks guys!! :)

My point exactly... it can be hard to tell lol. I completely got that one wrong but the flap setting does seem a little low for landing, was it a windy day by any chance?

ha yes and na not really, the skydive pilots are bit crazy with there landings haha

Thanks for the info. I see on your profile that you are a student pilot. I'm not sure what you fly and how much wind you have encountered so far but usually in Cessnas in higher winds a pilot will use less flaps for landing which is why I was asking about the wind. Thank you for the ifo, it's greatly appreciated :)

Sorry, it's supposed to say info not ifo
