That are awesome pictures! I like how you made it look unreal!

Lol i thought through the filters it would look more real as it shows the effects of the dirty parts of the aircraft… but maybe the opposite is the case :)

Lovely post & pics.
Is it me, or are you still fairly high to be flying with the gear down?

Epic! Looks even better with the gear lowered!

How did you get the gear tilt in the second pic? It adds a lot to the realism of the shot.

The gear is still deploying. Making it look like gear tilt but none the less the photos are beautiful

The second picture really portrays what you were aiming for!

thats actually the approach into Hong Kong ;)

I wonder why it was delivered at that time…
Maybe it should be 1975. aNyHoo, I like the pics and stats.
I might try that one time…

You sir are amazing at editing, I can’t reitirate this enough
