Thank you. I'm fond of it myself. I actually took an iphone screen shot of a photo that I had taken with my camera and posted to FB. I wanted to share the FB image with the cellar but was away from my computer and couldn't resize it.

To give you a sense of scale, here's another photo taken from the same spot, but with the camera zoomed out a bit.

And another where I zoomed in to full resolution and cropped. This plane was probably 100 meters away and 150 feet up in this one.

You only have a split second to get a shot, and the camera doesn't want to focus, but they are lined up to land about a minute apart, so you have all day to get a good shot as they come in one after the other.

If I'd taken the second pic in post #1996, I would've squee'd.

One of the cool things about being there is after the landing planes streak past you toward the runway, their roaring sound goes with them, and you hear the air above your head making funny wooshing and rippling wispy sounds as the turbulence in the plane's wake settles down into more stable air. Sometimes the weird sound lasts for as much as 20 seconds or so after the plane passes. Not every plane causes the noise. It must be something about the wing design, the flap settings, or the environmental situation at that moment. If you didn't know the plane created the sound, you would think it's ghosts or something. Very otherworldly.
