Side view of a twin engined jet airliner taxiing from right to left, turning away from the left of the camera. The plane is mostly white, with a thick pale blue line running along the body, with green "Cathay Pacific" titles on the upper forward fuselage. The tail is green, with a stylised white flying bird, looking as if it has been drawn with a single brush stroke. The same bird is just behind the cockpit in green, as well as on the green upturned wingtips. In the background, are several terminal buildings, the one under the planes tail is rather blurry because of the hot exhaust coming out of the engines. Above, the sky is blue with streaks of grey cloud.
