Lying on my stomach, hanging upside down out the door, shot this one wheel landing of the SA Air force Oryx.

A true photographer will take any position to get their shot!
When I first saw it I said 'Nah, not real, photoshopped.' but I have since changed my opinion when I saw the description.

That's a crazy shot, Tom! I'm glad you didn't fall out!
Alan Brown
Quite a shot to say the least.

I used to be a TV News cameraman with the South African Broadcasting in Cape Town for many many years. I flew on many search and rescue missions with 22 Squadron and I can say that in those years we landed on very very hairy places. This pic reminds me of them.
Great experienced pilots in those years but I don't know now........................

Well done Tom! The rotors are whipping up a rainbow in the mist for an added feature. Very nice capture and share.

This reminds me if my time as a crew chief on CH-46s in the Marines when we would do main mount landings. It takes nerves of steel to pull them off as just like this one. Great shot.

Talk about short field landings!
OMG- This is a great shot!

Yep - this is a five star shot, no question. I love the originality. I always say that I will never tire of looking at portrait shots of aircraft, but that does not mean that I do not appreciate a fresh perspective. Well done, Tom!
