Closeup of the tail of a very large jet airliner parked facing to the right. The planes body is white, with an aquamarine tail withdarker blue at the top and bottom, and white swirls, suggesting surf on an ocean. In the background, the nose of a smaler plane is just poking in to view on the left side. The background rapidly fades into haze as we look across the airfield.
