Photographer's Note

Airport of Zürich arranges very interesting and quite affordable sightseeing tours within the airport. Sights include maintenance halls, fire station and both terminals from the airside. But the main attraction is obviously the viewing spot right next to the runway. Especially when the Airbus 380, daily visitor from Singapore takes off.

Rotation in aviation terms means lifting the nose wheel off the ground during the takeoff roll. The aircraft then lifts up from the runway and takes off whenever it reaches the optimal speed.
