737 Light Trail

I saw this somewhere ( and I wanted to try it. I took numerous exposures to get the camera position correct as well as the zoom. Unfortunately our angle wasn't the greatest so I couldn't take the picture of the plane at it's start point on the runway. Still I'm surprised and pleased at how well these turned out.


This one appears to have leveled off for a bit after takeoff before getting the go ahead to climb higher. We were listening to the Air Traffic on our scanners (wee_in_yyc and I) and were waiting for a British Airways Boeing 777. While we waited I took numerous pictures of others to get it right.
