Pretty balsy at such a low altitude!
Thanks guys! No idea why this photo wasn't a FA staff pick?
It deserves to be a staff pick. What a great shot!
Holy crap!
WOW! Stunning shot!
Haha Tom I was thinking EXACTLY the same thing!!

This gives a new meaning to the tower saying "early right turnout approved". Great shot!

Looks like a 74 landing at Kai Tak...craziest airport in the world...should say was.

You bought it new. At least get it of the lot :-)
Now I know why my last freight shipment from Europe was crushed.
Great photo!

Great shot! I can't believe this photo was not featured as a staff pick when currently there are 135 votes!
I would have banked on this being a staff pick too.

I was fortunate enough to see this that day, there was something going on with the museums and I was down at the windsock. Sort of scared me as I had no idea why it was rolling so hard!

It's bank angle time!
I cannot believe I was there and witnessed this. No camera, I honestly wasn't sure what was about to happen, and was considering running! I am glad someone else caught it!
Completely safe turn when proper speed is maintained. Very nice photograph.
