Side view of a twin engined jet airliner with the engines mounted on the rear fuselage, moving from left to right. The plane is mostly a dull white, with paler white "Scandinavian Airlines" titles on the forward fuselage", and the registration "OY-KFB" on the rear fuselage. The tail and the upturned wingtips are a deep blue, with white "SAS" titles. The engine pods are red, with white "Scandinavian" titles. In the foreground, grass lines the runway, with alternating red and white blocks running along the side of the grass near the camera. In the background, more grass leads off to trees at the airfield perimeter, with grey skies up above.

Side view of a twin engined jet airliner parked facing to the left, with white airstairs attached to the open mid-forward door, and a cargo belt attached to the open rear cargo hold. There are large, blue, billboard-style "Spanair" titles on the forward fuselage, partially obscured by the connected airstairs. The tail has blue and orange wavy lines running through the middle. The foreground is almost entirely concrete apron, with a red and white striped metal bar right at the bottom of the frame. In the backgroud, trees line the airport perimeter, with blue-grey skies up above.
