EVA AIR BOEING 747-45EM TAKING OFF AT AMSTERDAM SCHIPHOL

31/08/2010

The great timing and angle just makes this shot and the size of the 747 look surreal; the distance to the fence was 145 meters (475 ft).
This is an amazing photo 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 might not have cleared the fence!
