Photos of Note: A chance air-to-air encounter with a 787

During a visit to Seattle several weeks ago, I found myself readying for takeoff from runway 34L at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport when I spotted a familiar sight on the horizon. On final approach to Boeing Field was ZA004, returning from a test flight descending south of the city. I grabbed my camera as we began our takeoff roll, watching the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000-powered jet flying lower and lower. As our 757-200 climbed out, we kept pace with the 787 as it flew underneath us right over Interstate 5. Holding down the shutter at six frames per second I figured some of the resulting shots had to be decent. Here's the result.
