Lots to choose from, but for this I had to pick something from Amsterdam Schiphol Taxiway Q. My favorite spot at the airport and my all time favorite place to watch a 747 roll by. Just having an un-obstructive view as this beast slowly taxi's by you with the wingtip not at all far from you is just, in my opinion, one of the best experiences.

Air Bridge Cargo 747-400F VQ-BUU (new in 2006 with Jade Air Cargo as B-2439, transferred to Air Bridge in 2014 and now G-CLAE with Cargologicair) ambles along Taxiway Q at Schiphol on the 24th August 2017.

Taken 5th June 1983 at Heathrow. Prior to Paris Air Show, the Shuttle was taken to Stansted, and also did this flypast at Heathrow.
