The Tokyo shots are cool! I'm gonna' venture that's a 777 on final for
RWY 16L at (is that Narita?) the airport.
It looks as though the plane has a FX purple tail, but there doesn't appear to be a tail engine, and the shape doesn't look like a DC-10 or MD-11. If I would have to venture a guess, I would say it is an ANA 777.
If you're referring to the "black" airplane, taking off, that's just the shadow. If you look just to the right, you can see the actual white airplane, which looks like a Dash 8 to me. Just a guess though.
And as far as the NRT shot goes, I'd say it's a T7 as well, but hard to make out the airline.
Quoting PapaNovember (Reply 3): did try to save the picture so I could open it PhotoShop and zoom in closer but Google wouldn't let me
Use "ctrl" and "prtscrn", make a screeshot and paste it into MSPaint or Photoshop, that's what I did.
Is there a Concorde on display at JFK? If not does the presence of this (what's appears to be the Concorde) aircraft help date this satellite image that Google is using for Google Maps (and Google Earth)?
