Side view of a twin engined jet airliner moving from right to left, with the thrust reversers extended on the engines, with the flaps deployed from the rear of the wings, suggesting it has just landed and is rapidly decelerating. The plane's body and engine pods are mostly silver, with dark blue "SKYTEAM" titles on the upper forward fuselage, and dark blue "KLM" titles under a stylised crown on the lower forward fuselage. The rear fuselage carries some intricate dark blue scrollwork, partially obscured by the wing. The tail is dark blue, with silver "SKYTEAM" titles forming part of a circle around some silver scrollwork. Green grass fills the foreground, with trees and bases of lighting poles visible on the skyline under the plane, the tops of the lighting poles also being visible over the top of the plane. The sky is a hazy grey.

Side view of a twin propellor-engined airlinertaxiing from right to left. The plane is mostly white, with a thick light blue and light grey stripe running along the body from the nose. There are small "Luxair" titles on the upper forward fuselage, just aft of the forward door. The tail is mostly white, with a light blue leading edge, and light grey diagonal stripe. The engine pods are a bare metal finish. In the background, acres of concrete fill the screen.

Side view of a single engined, two seat biplane on display in a museum. The plane is a duck-egg blue, with silvery wings and nose engine cowling. There is a long exhaust pipe running along the body from the engine, finishing just below and aft of the rear cockpit. There is a golden, winged triangle overlaid with the words "Avro Avian". The registration "G-EBZM" is prominent in black on the rear fuselage. In the background, various exhibits can be see scattered around a large hall, with a high roof with extensive glazing.
