Side view of a very large 4 engined jet airliner taxiing from left to right. The plane's body is mostly white, with a red stripe running from the nose to the rear covering the lower deck cabin windows. Below the stripe on the forward fuselage, there are "Qatar Airways" titles in English, repeated avbove the stripe in a much larger Arabic script. The tail is red, with an image if a white goat with 2 horns on the back of its head, in front of the white outline of a circle. In the background, the right side of the frame is dominated by a large grey hangar with "BritishAirways" titles in the top left corner, above a thin red stripe which runs the length of the building. The left side of thebackground of the frame contains a large green metal structrure with grey supports sticking out at an angle. Above it all, the sky is a murky grey.

Side view of a three engined jet airliner facing to the right. The plane is mostly white, with a silver belly, and a thick blue stripe running along the fuselage covering the cabin windows. There are dark blue "Delta" titles on the upper forward fuselage, with a large dark blue, white, and red triangle just behind the cockpit. The same triangular logo is seen in a larger form covering most of the tail, and in a smaller form on the outer engines. In the foreground there are some scattered yellow baggage carts, with people standing in various places. Behind, there are a couple of tall lighting stands on the right, while there is a large terminal building off to the left. A dismal grey sky, with some added window reflections, completes the picture.
