Side view of a high-winged single engined light aircraft flying from right to left at very low level, with it's nose lowered, and flaps extended below the wings, suggesting it may be landing. The plane is mostly white, with a red and grey stripe running along the body, a red stripe on the fixed undercarriage spats, and the registraion "G-CIRZ" on the rear fuselage. There is also "Mainair Flying School" titles on the tail. Behind the plane, blurry trees are rushing past, under a really light blue sky.
