OK, this is not the sharpest photo I ever posted to this gallery. It was taken while I was sitting in my garden with the aircraft at a distance of over 5 kilometers from my house at a height of 4.200 feet. But I was quite surprised to be able to read the registration under the wing after I enlarged the image, although I only used a 280 mm lens. In the original image, the 747 is just a small dot. When viewed on a PC-screen at a distance of a few metres, it is quite an acceptable photo. The aircraft is Boeing 747-406BC c/n 27202 PH-BFR "City of Rio de Janeiro" of KLM Royal Dutch airlines on its way to Schiphol Amsterdam airport (EHAM) in a clean configuration. The aircraft entered the Dutch register on 14 January 1994.
