Side view of a group of near identical jet airliners lined up facing to the right, attached to terminal airbridges. The planes are mostly white, with a blue belly, and yellow tails and rear fuselages. The planes have "Monarch" titles (or occasionally "" titles) on the forward fuselage, , ahead of a large blue letter "M" with 3 dots over the top, resembling a crown. The same crown logo is featured on the tail. The plane furthest awa is larger, with a white tail instead of yellow. In the background, trees mark the airfield boundary, with trees, buildings, and large electrical pylons extending into the hazy distance, under a grey sky.
