Hi John,

You have captured well the action of the trust reverser of the aircraft. The point of view is showing the details of the Belgain Air Force Airbus A321. You good management of the strong light which does not hurt the output of the colours. Have a nice day.


Hello John,
It's unusual to see such a big plane at such a small airport. No hangars, no large areas of asphalt, no other planes parked here. The field and the trees create a rather idyllic atmosphere. You seem to have taken this just seconds after the plane hit the ground, and you captured the dust swirling from the wheels very well, and with a perfect sharpness on the plane. Exposure is also immaculate.
Kind regards,

  • Great

Hallo John,
Een mooie foto van dit witte vliegtuig van de Belgische luchtmacht op deze zonnige dag. De groene bomen en het lichtere groen van het gras en de lichtblauwe lucht zorgen voor een mooie omlijsting.

Hello John,

Interesting, usefull notes as well.
TFS and best regards

an excellent view of this airplane , curious as it looks a civil plane, not a military one.

take care


Bonjour, cher ami John,
Très bon sujet, j'adore tout ce qui touche à l'aviation.
Ce gros oiseau blanc est joliment dressé à travers cette composition.

Salut john,
Bien pris cet avion avec la poussière et fumée qui donnent un bon effet dynamique à la photo, très bonne netteté et luminsoité.

Hello John,
Quite an unusual subject to see in your gallery, but one that is bound to appeal to friend Pierre (pierrefonds). The aircraft is well placed in the frame and stands out nicely against its surroundings. Perfectly exposed with excellent rendering of the colours and markings.

Hi John
You can see the speed and power this machine has even when it is standing still, surrounded by natural landscape.
Have a nice Sunday

Hi John,

Good sharpness on the Belgian Airforce jet, with some slight motion blur to the bg trees suggesting some skilful panning n your part. The fg grass stalks add depth and layering as well as a nice frame. Tfs!

Ciao John, great view of fantastic airplane, excellent clarity, fine details, splendid light and wonderful colors very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello John, Unusual picture in your gallery. Instead of views of monuments or portraits, the big airplane. I must be a fascinating event. The excellent image just after landing, with the dust around. Superb sharpness.

Kind regards MAlgo

Hello John,
nice the view as the presentation of the air plane of the Belgian air force.The clarity and the sharpness are captured and presented perfect.


Hello John,
This is a lovely airplane photo. I think this is the fist airplane from the Belgian Air Force that I have seen. 👍

Hello John,
I reckon you found a great spotting location, very close to the runway, which allow good view with a 47mm length.
The Airbus is marvelously shown after landing, reducing speed with the thrust-reversers open (see it upon the engine pylon), raising a much of dust to the air.
My cong.s for that attractive picture which I know to appreciate.
Good evening,

fraai view
heel mooi gemaakt John, weer eens wat anders goede plaat mooi werk.
