Remarks: You have no idea what lengths I went to trying to get this shot! Thanks to everyone who made this possible, including my fabulous nan, Jim and my parents. What an amazing oppurtunity to get so close to this behemoth! Apologies for the takeoff shot, someone moved their brolly in front of my camera.
