Behemoth taking off

A A380 from Emirates in Manchester, with ATC communications and the sound of the mighty motors just before taking off (pump up the volume at that moment!).

Why do I blog this?

Because, you know, I love planes. I am in awe of these behemoths pulling away their tons of metal from the earth to reach the sky, challenging the laws of gravity. It's brute force and a wonderful achievement in technology. It's jaw dropping and frightening and, yes, beautiful.
