Retro BOAC 747

The BA 747 in BOAC colours is on it's way from Dublin to Heathrow (BA100). Should land about 10.15.

Union flag on the nose is a bit too high.

Other than that, it looks fabulous. Can't wait to see it in the sunshine.

Like 99.9% of books ever published. What's with all the anti-portrait rage these days?!

The 747 is a perfect shape to look at with vertical alignment.

As I was taught back in the 80s; look at your subject. Now, turn the camera to portrait. Look again and choose.

Because usually, photos of aircraft (especially airliners) are taken in landscape because of their shape?

That's all fine and good when shooting stills, I think that DRUK's frustration is that it's a video and as such portrait looks crap when viewed on a landscape orientated screen.

If the 747 was doing this, I wouldn't object to portrait.

I bet there is some Airport rule being broken by these snappers about photo's being taken on the ramp. Works both ways
