I always want to take a picture when the plane is taking-off...but I worry that the flight attendants will throw me out of the plane if I turn on my camera. ;-)

Cheers! -Steve

It's better to be thrown away from such a small elevation, than from the ceiling height... ;))

Greets, Zlatan

I will remember your advice next time (and bring a parachute).

Happy travels to you! -Steve

Hi Zlatan. I hope you don't mind me using your fine photograph in the I have one like thatforum! Best wishes from the UK, Brian

Hi Steve, what to bring depends on the place you expect to be thrown down, better to say to be thrown up. For example, when you're up above Heathrow Airport you better bring a good umbrella. Not only for possibility of the forced flying to the ground. Falling rain kills there even more.

Hi Brian, moreover, you deserves even more than my mutual compliance. Please, don't link anything with the subject of my talks with Steve and his hesitations with that. Thank you. Btw, you have a damn good observation ability!

Best regards, Zlatan

Thank you for the advice. Yes, I understand Heathrow is on a geographic point where all rain on earth is attracted, like the pole of a magnet.

Best wishes! -Steve
