i always look outside Astrid... good Friday catch....petersmile
Picturit: I never sat near the window of an airplane and I could see the wheels being pulled up and brought down... quite an interesting thing to see...

Yes...worth a peek outside for this photo-opportunity, Astrid.
Picturit: I always love to be next to the window.... 'glued to the view'

Très jolie photo originale, j'aime.
Picturit: Thank you, Martine. It was one of those occasions.
Astrid.
You're like a little kid when you sit next to the airplane window, Astrid, and I love it for you. But how many times do you get to see the wheels like this!!!
Picturit: Thank you so much for always letting me have the window seat.... I truly love it and I have many pictures of what I see. This was the first time I see the wheels of the airplane, on the other airplanes we just 'hope' they have them grin...

Flying in to Netherlandsland I am struck by the constant shine of water in canals and lakes. If this was a Chadair flight then I just hope the other wheel was down too Astrid.
Picturit: This was Chad-Air and yes I was confirmed by the other person on the other window that it showed a wheel too and it was still attached to the airplain even after landing.... so yes next time I fly Chad-Air again.....

Oh, this is a great image, it could make my day! Like you I always love to sit next to the window.
Picturit: Don't you just love it. The only time we both want to have an aisle seat when we come back from the USA at night, so we can sleep and go to the toilet without bother or being bothered by other people...

Je ne prends pas souvent l'avion , mais ce que je préfère c'est regarder a travers le hublot ..
Très belle prise de vue
Picturit: You will love it. We fly maybe twice a year and it is fun to me.

A nice aerial shot Astrid. You're either about to land or he's forgotten to retract the wheels
Picturit: We are about to land, this is the flight from Exeter to Amsterdam.
Thank you, Chris.
Astrid.
Being by the window is great. I got a lovely view of Birmingham when we came back from The Netherlands but was too busy spotting places to actually take any snaps!
Picturit: Don't you love it. This was Exeter to Amsterdam and it was the first that we saw the wheels...

I guess you would have jumped up and down if you hadn't been strapped in, Astrid
Picturit: It was quite smooth I have to admit. Even in the rain it was great to see the 'lift-off'.... I even took a video smile
Astrid.
Looking down like that is enough to set my Vertigo off, one reason I don't like flying any more.
Picturit: sad I am sorry to hear that. But there is so much to see even not going by airplane. Maureen will be happy to drive you around.
Astrid.
Picturit: Never a dull moment for me. I love flying and the longer flights, I have square eyes from watching movies HA....
Thank you, Mary.
Astrid.
Giant Wheel Crushes Tanker...
Picturit: HA.... the tanker will not be pleased...
Astrid.
Wonderful views! I love aerial photographs!
Picturit: Me too, I have some views from the Alpes with snow. Amazing how they look..
Astrid.
I'm with you! I'll take the "Astrid" seat! Great!
Picturit: You and I will switch seats every half hour when we fly together grin....
Astrid.
WOW!!!
Picturit: Yes indeed WOW... these are the views I always like.
Astrid.

Flying Tiff-air by the looks.
Een lekker vet kanaal voor de grote verkeer.
Picturit: Tiff-air has wheels smile.... mooi hè dat kanaal, kunnen grote boten naar Amsterdam en daarna met de Rijn-aken (binnenschepen)door naar het 'achterland'... tot aan Zwitserland en verder.
Astrid.
Wow this is awesome! Odd usually sits by the window so it's difficult for me to take photos during the flight.
Picturit: Ginnie always let me sit next to the window. So I think I am the lucky one. Maybe next trip Odd might switch places with you...
what a stunning view, Astrid. this view of the wheel is never seen in a commercial airline. i have often wondered how they are designed because of so many dynamic forces and the safety implications. i don't suppose one can open the window and spit outside tongue
Picturit: Ha ha ha.... I think I would have been thrown from the plane without a parachute if I wanted to spit out of the window..... this was very interesting to see how these wheels were pulled up and released down.... highly fascinating.
