Landing gear Down
For having tried this with my former f-717 (very like your 707), I realize how difficult it is to be on the right timing and the right focus. Seems of course simple with a DSLR now! So, congratulations, Robert, it's not only a very good shot, but the wings and just a short part of the leg shadowing on the wood adds realism to the motion. Nice warm colors too.

Hi Robert, congratulations! Yesterday I tried do same thing but I'm less patient than you and gave up. Very good photo, really. I like composition with shadows of wings on wood and good BG. Title is also very suitable :-)

Wow - you did it - but I: nothing :-(. - Brillant!!! Congrats. Excellent shot Robert, great lighting, details and sharpness, nice bg and contrast. Very well done. Thanks for sharing.
I agree with the others - it is a very good shot indeed. What makes this shot so good imo is - as the title says - that you can see the one leg is down and ready to take contact with the fence. It add a lot of action to the picture and makes it look "realistic". The colours are very natural and the 1/800 just froze the wings enough to show some details. Finally the panorama cropping makes the picture perfect. I wonder if you would have had a touch down if you had been able to shoot in sequence mode;-).
However the picture has some noise and I think Jean Michel did a very good job.

I think the background is a bit noisy in this one Rob. But apart from that its a good attempt with your equipment. There is nothing like pushing to the max with what you have at the time and getting the most out of it. Its great to see the landing ggear down and the dfly seemingly focused on the post. Well done.

Excellente capture en plein vol, très difficile. Beaucoup de netteté et bon PDC.

Lovely capture, Robert. I am just back from my vacation and have lots of photos to check out and edit. I will supply a proper critique later my friend.
This is a very impressive capture.

Great timing on this capture Rob. I like the horizontal framing although there is a little noise in the image which could be cleaned up. Well done
Love the shot and very well captured how many attempts before this one? I've got lots of shots of blurred unidentifiable bits of insects that never left the memory card. Maybe next year…
