    South of Hongqiao airport is an area where people live and work in the entry lane for planes, a few hundred meters from the runway. Planes landing are so close that I thought I could almost grab them. This turns into an amazing experience at night.

    I didn't intend to catch the guy in the front but he kinda makes the picture. Wish I had changed focus for that but still works for me.

      Thanks, that place is quite crazy and surely not the most popular one to live.

      finde die leichte bewegungsunschärfe des flugzeugs ergänzt sich perfekt mir der unschärfe des herren im vordergrund. gibt dem raum mehr tiefe.

      Great!!! Frankfurt Kelsterbach, of all places, is not very different!!! Especially since they added a second landing strip recently.
