Low side view of a twin engined jet airliner flying from left to right at a very olow altitude with flaps deployed from behind the wing and the nose raised steeply, suggesting it has just taken off. The plane is mostly white, with golden feathers on the nose, mid fuselage, and engine pods, emulating the look of a dove. There are 3 wavy golden stripes on the tail, with golden "BritishAirways" titles just aft of a golden ribbon on the upper rear fuselage. Behind, the sky is a pale blue.

A rather chaotic lineup of 5 identical twin engined jet airliners parked at various angles facing to the right at an airport - each one is blue with a white belly, and has red "TUI" titles on the forward fuselage, as well as red winky-face on the tail that is actually made up of the letters T, U, and I. They also have red covers over the intakes on the white engine pods. In the foreground, a black chainlink fence partially obscures the lower half of the planes, with a crash barrier lining the roadway in front. In the background, a tall airport building dominates the centre of the frame, with a control tower in the top left corner, with a bright white sky behind.

Side view of a high-winged, twin propellor-engined airliner taxiing from right to left. The plane is mostly white, with a grey belly, seperated by a red and blue stripe along the body. There are "eurowings" titles on the upper forward fuselage, slightly above and aft of a stylised image of two flying birdss, one red, one blue, with the blue one having a tail that loops below in a circle, this same logo appearing in a larger form on the tail. The registration "D-BEEE" appears of the upper rear fuselage, with small "eurowings" titles below that. In the background, taxiways bisect large grassed areas.
