Side view of a twin propellor-engined airliner accellerating from right to left on a runway. The plane is mostly white, with very small "Stobart Air" titles on the forward door, and just aft of the rear door. The registration "EI-FMK" is on the upper rear fuselage, just forward of the rear door, and just aft of an Irish flag (equal green, white, and orange vertical bands). Grass fills the foreground, while in the background, red and white banded metal towers are behind the plane, made blurry by panning the camera, with trees in the far distance, under a grey sky.

The plane is mostly white, with a light grey belly, and a golden stripe swooping it's way along the body. There are large blue "United" titles on the upper forward fuselage, with the registration "N20904" on the lower rear fuselage. The tail is dark blue, with a white and gold wireframe globe. Behind, the sky is a flat grey.

Side view of a single engined light aircraft parked facing to the left. The plane is mostly black, with a pair of thin red stripes running from the nose to the rear, getting wider as they go, before they sweep up into the lower part of the tail. The cockpit doors are wide open, revealing the red trim inside. There are two people, and man and a young boy, walking behind the plane at it's rear, on the right of the frame. There are crowds of people on the left, with other aircraft on static display beyond them. There are 2 large grey buildings crossing the middle of the frame, partially obscured by this plane, with a grey sky above everything.

Side view of a twin engined jet airliner being towed from left to right. The plane has a dull silver body, with a blue, white, and red stripe running from nose to tail, and large red "American" titles on the upper forward fuselage. The tail has a pair of letter ""A"'s, one red, one blue, between which is a stylised blue stooping eagle. In the background, tall lighting poles are scattered around the airport, with a smaller, white, twin engined jet airliner parked in front of a low but wide building, with a large grey concrete tower next to it. Beyond that, details are lost in haze.
