On April 25,2015 , TC-JPE has been hit the runway 05 of Istanbul Ataturk Airport, very hard during touch down. Reason were detected as "vortex" on runway which were caused by heavy aircraft which was landed few minutes before TC-JPE.

Hi Rajansingh, we have certain places around the airport for taking photos. By using 200mm lens and adjusting camera to catch fast moving objects help us to get proper results :) Have a great day. Brgds
