I had positioned slightly more than 7,000 feet down the 9,000-foot-long 34R because last week, when CKS's sibling Queen N402KZ, took off from this same runway, it did not rotate until reaching the 8,000 foot (1,000 feet remaining) marker. But yesterday, when N403KZ departed, it was leaving empty so it was able to rotate 2000 feet earlier. Thus, as it came past me here with engines firewalled, it had lifted several feet into the air and I got exactly the picture series I had hoped to get. This is one snap from that 17-shot series.

I could VOMIT, seeing this brand featured here. the kalitta brand is the worst of the worst supplemental freight-dogs out there. it's too bad that they still have their certificate up on the wall in Sanderlin's office..
Dale Docken
Awesome. Magnificent!! Thanks, Gary.

I missed this beautiful queen! Normally I can tell by the sound what kind of aircraft is going over the house, but somehow missed this beautiful baby. I am keeping my eyes peeled!

Darryl, Greg, Dave S., Ken, Pierre, User, Dale, and Royce. >>> Thank You to all of you for each of your extremely kind comments. I was thrilled to be in the proper spot to snap this. We surely don't get very many 747s here so every one that visits here is a treat. Thanks again. (Wave)
Cougardad ... >> Since I know zilch about how Kalitta operates, I'm in no position to judge them and I will figure you are more knowledgeable than I about them so I'll accept your comments as accurate. But just as an FYI ... ANY airline, commercial pax or cargo, that brings a B747 here is appreciated, GREATLY appreciated, by me. We just never get to see the Queen here except on extremely rare occasions, so I am honestly sorry that this photo makes you so ill. The only remedy I can suggest is that you not view ANY Kalitta pics, either any of mine or anyone elses. And I apologize in advance because if Kalitta Air flies another B747 here, I'm going to be out there to click it.
@ Royce .. >> .. By your comment, I am guessing you live under the 34R departure path. I snapped plenty of pics of this one climbing out away from me over the north valleys. If you wish to have a pic of it from behind, on its departure climb, e/m me at OldeCarl@gmail.com Will send, no problem.

Agree with all the comments so far. With the exception of cougardad, lol.
You're so close, did you lose your lens cap in the blast? I'm jealous.

Pete Sanderlin is the COO of Kalitta Air per their web site. I'm wondering whether cougardad is a former employee. Kalitta laid off 150 maintenance workers last summer (Oscoda, MI) due to business conditions.
