Default In-bound heavy from Anchorage

Got lucky this morning at Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport and caught this Polar Air Cargo B747-400F in-bound from Anchorage, Alaska.
Nikon D300s + Nikon 70-200 f/2.8.

#1 About to touch down on Rwy 18L. Check out the blasts out of the engines even when landing.



#2 Reverse thrusters engaged as this massive bird tries to slow down.


#3: Kicking up some dust as the spoilers and brakes are engaged

Thanks Ned and Shotrutle: Since DHL relocated one of their hubs to Cincinnati, the weekend sees some "heavies". Unfortunately, most of them arrive late Friday evening and then depart on late Sunday evening. This was quite a surprise to see this 747 freighter arrive at 11:30 AM when the light is good from the viewing area.

I photogtaphed some other regional jets that I'll post in a separate thread...not very exciting though!
