The great timing and angle just makes this shot, and the size of the 747, looks surreal.
The distance to the fence was 145 meters(475ft)... Yikes!
I wonder if anyone computed the take-off distance prior to the trip?
Thisis an amazing picture of a disaster that didn't happen. From the smallest airplane to the largest,weight & balance calculations are a critical part of flight safety. From the looks of this 747, the weight was within the CG envelope, but if they'd have added one more 'marshmallow' to each snack tray, this BIRD might not have cleared the fence !!!!
