Side view of a 3 engined bizjet taxiing from right to left. The plane is almost entirely white, the only colour being the registration "OE-IOD" on the side-mounted engine pods in black, and the Austrian flag (red, white, and red horizontal bands) on the top of the tail. In the background, large expanses of grass lead up to trees in the distance, below a cloudy grey sky.

Side view of a twin propellor-enginedlight aircraft parked on grass facing to the left. The plane is mostly white, with 3 dark and light blue stripes running along the body, getting wider as they go towards the rear. The tail is mostly white, with more stripes towards the rear. The engines and wingtip fuel tanks also have blue stripes running their length. The registration N453C is on the rear fuselage in white. In the background, green grass runs off to bushes and trees on the airfield perimeter, leading to the horizon, where they meet the cloudy sky.

Side view of a high-winged, 4 engined jet airliner taxiing from right to left. The plane is mostly white, with green and red "CITYJET" titles on the upper forward fuselage, and an image of a flying woman weraing a red leotard and holding a red flag with the word "Virgin" written on it. The tail is red, with the word "Virgin" in the middle. The engine pods are also red. The registration "EI-CTY" is on the upper rear fuselage in black. In the foreground, a body of water can be seen, several metres below the level of the taxiway. In the background, green grass leads up to fences at the wirfield perimeter, with cars driving past on a nearby road, and houses and other buildings beyond that, under a blue-grey sky.
