Side view of a 3 engined jet airliner taxiing from left to right. The plane is mostly white, with red "Tunisair" titles un the upper middle fuselage in English, and on the upper forward fuselage in an Arabic script. A series of thin red lines come from under the rear fuselage and up into the tail, forming the image of a leaping gazelle. In the background, the original Budapest terminal building can be seen, with trees and other buildings dominating the skyline, under a dismal grey sky.

Closeup of the tail of a very arge 4 engined jet airliner, facing to the right. The planes bodyhas a white belly, with orange upper surfaces. The tail is orange, with a painting of a male lion's head, facing to the right. Toward the middle left of the image, the rear door of the plane is open - in fact, the doors on each side are open, meaning you can see straight through. In the background,a lot of vehicles are parked in a ground level parking facility, with 2- and 3- storey building behind them. Trees run off to the horizon, vanishing into the hazy white sky.
