The plane is a bright orange, with the white number 200, and sideways "easyJet's 200th Airbus" titles under the cockpit, large white letters "ea" on the forward fuselage just aft of the forward doors, black letters "UI" on the nosewheel gear door. The 2 members of the flight crew are visible in the cockpit, as well as several passengers visible through the cabin windows.

Side view of a single propellor engined trainer aircraft parked facing to the left. The plane is mostly grey, with a bright red stripe running along the belly, moving slightly up the fuselage as it moved rearwards, then sharply angling up to the top of the fuselage. There is a red, white, and blue roundel outlined in yellow, on the rear fuselage, followed by the serial "312-US". There is also a red stripe on the tail, with the number "500"at the top. Under the wings are large grey external fuel tanks. The background has a bright orange plane on the right side, bright sky filling the rest of the frame.

Side view of a high-winged, 4 propellor-engined cargo aircraft taxiing from right to left. The plane has a grey lower half, the upper half is white, with a thin blue and red stripe above a thick blue stripe, seperating the 2 halves, with the words "HeavyLift" in blue and red over a gap in the stripes. The registration "PK-PLR" is also contained in the thick blue stripe, this time i grey. The tail is red, with a large white letter "H", which appears to be casting a dark blue shadow to the lower left. In the background, alternating strips of grass and tarmac give way to large brown hangars which are vanishing in to haze in the far distance, all under an ominous grey sky.
