Those are really nice! It looks like you are very close.


I have never and will never fly on it, but Air New Zealand is my favorite airline


Thank you! I was right up by the planes, almost missed the ANZ too, It looked like a go-around in progress, was gonna be real angry!


Nice! What do you shoot with?

Whoops- forgot to include it!

Nikon D5600 with a 75-300mm Nikkor Lens. I usually have a hood aswell. (not needed in this weather, lol) Shot at around f-stop 8 or 7,1. ISO is usually static at 200, though I’m lazy so I just use the ISO-MANUAL Mode.
