Side view of a twin engined jet airliner flying from left to right at a very low altitude, with flaps extended from the rear of the wings, and wheels fully deployed, suggesting it is about to land. The plane is mostly white, with grey and yellow "" titles on the upper forward fuselage. The the tail and rear fuselage start as white, with a series of grey dots that slowly grow larger and coalesce into a solid gry, with a single yellow dot towards the top right of the tail. The planes upturned wingtips are bright yellow. In the background, a gorgeous blue sky with wisps of grey fills the rest of the frame.

Side view of a twin engined jet airliner taxiing from left to right. The plane is mostly white, with a polished metal belly, and a black stripe running along the body, covering the passenger cabin windows, with a second, thinner, red stripe just above that. There are large black "Delta" titles on the upper forward fuselage, and a large black, white, and red triangle over the forward door, just aft of the cockpit. A smaller version of that same triangle is on the engine pods, with the word "Delta" undernesath, as well as covering the tail, with "Delta" titles across the middle. In the background, the nose of a very large airliner is just coming into view immediately behind this plane's tail on the left of the frame, with smaller planes parked on grass beyond that. Large hangars dominate the far distance, witrh large white planes parked in front of them, under a hazy grey sky.

Side view of a single engined, high-winged, light aircraft, parked facing to the left. The plane is mostly white, with a red/black/red stripe running along the body, with the top of the engine cowling and the propellor spinner painted red. In the background, grass leads up to a grey hangar with the word "Hunting" painted on the side in black, with trees behind it, under a dismal grey sky.
