Best article I've seen on this. Everyone else seems to think this kid is some kind of hero for surviving. Lucky he's not a spot on the plane.

Getting a cool shot is one thing. Living to tell how you got it is another thing. I like to get the cool shots while remaining at a safe distance so the wake(not that there's much wake from a Cessna) doesn't mess up my beard.

right, Gustaf III Airport; even Toncontín managed to get rid of the road at the end of the runway

now there's just the mountains at the ends of the runway

Oh duh, saw him get lucky again on another site and it says Barts. lucky the Cessna missed him as a full frontal would certainly affect the aircrafts approach path.

Idiots come in all sizes and shapes. Spot on the plane? More like idiot struck by plane crashes.

Not the brightest, or the fastest reflexes. Barely good enough.

A dumass photog meets with a bad pilot (approach) : unless of course the pilot was aiming for the dumbass.

Eh, don't you think the pilot was maybe showing off a little? Seems low. But that doesn't excuse anyone from being an obstacle distraction...

Isn't that what a zoom lens is for?
jbqwik
jbqwik 1
yes. and no. Zoom lens add bokeh, a good thing, but also magnify shake. In photography, it's hard to beat up close and personal.

hah yup! Who said plane spotting is boring?
You know, in some countries a person is still responsible for himself. Back in my day common sense ruled.
