Side view of a twin engined jet airliner being pushed back from it's gate, to the left, by a grey tug attached to the nosewheel, with someone in a hi-viz vest walking alongside the nosewheel, and another person in a hi-viz jacket walking by the wingtip. The plane is mostly white, with a red and orange stripe running along the body and sweeping up in to the tail. There are black "air europe" titles on the upper forward fuselage, next to an Italian flag (vertical green, white, and orange bars), and diagonally on the tail. In the background, a white and red striped metal barrier runs most of the way across the frame from the left, seperating 2 sections of taxiway, with a small construction site at the end. In the background, a runway runs from one side of the frame to the other, lined with buildings on the far side, and with a very large dark blue and grey plane coming in to land, flying just feet above it. Trees lead off in to the distance, meeting a bright but hazy sky.

Side view of a twin engined jet air liner with the engines mounted on the rear fuselage taxiing from left to right. The plane is mostly white, withdark blue "Air France" titles on the upper mid fuselage, light blue and red "Air Inter" titles on the upper forward fuselage, and grey "express" titles on the lower forward fuselage. The engine pods have small "Air Littoral" titles. The rear fuselage has a dark blue band reaching up in to the tail, where is dissolves in to a series of blue stripes, before ending in a red triangle. In the background, yellowing grass runs off towards trees in the distance, under a grey sky.

The registration "F-GNMA" is on the lower rear fuselage in grey. In the foreground, a chain link fence runs along the bottom of the frame. In the background, another plane is isible behind this one on the right, with grass and trees on the horizon on the left. Above, the sky is a grim, flat grey.

Side view of a twin engined jet airliner parked facing to the right. The plane is a pale, mint green, with a fat red stripe running along the fuselage, with white "Windrose" titles on the upper forward fuselage. The engine pods are also red. The tail is the same green, with a red and white abstract logo by the rear edge. In the foreground, white tugs and airstairs litter the apron space, with red and white metal barriers, some horribly faded, and various poles carrying yellow signs. There is also a tall lighting pole right in front of the middle of this plane. In the background, cars are parked behind another red and white barrier, with trees beyond that.
