The longest heaviest aircraft currently in operation, Pentax DS 35mm f2

The Boeing 737 shown below is much, much closer than the Antonov 225



Hey, that's my car!

How do those things fly! Just the wheels on them must weigh a ton or two!

Ira, did a minor edit (hope you don't mind). I brightened up the image and cloned out the red flag in the foreground.

You captured the perfect perspective of this enormous beastsperbly with 35 mm. It must have been quite an impressive sight! Did you see it take off at all?

No luck seeing it in motion but it has been in and out of here a couple of times in the past week so I still could get lucky.

Wonder how it feels to sit in the cockpit and be in charge with such a veichle. Nice catch, Ira. Not sure I'd like to have one of those descending over my roof, though.

Thats a great picture, I have seen it in flight, they used to use it to bring in some of the big stuff that was going up on the shuttle. Havent seen it in a while. Of course we cant get close enought to get a picture on the ground. Restricted Area.
