The blue tailed 747:

Its a GE logo, but the GE 747 is not this color.
And also, is this type of image acceptable on a.net? I've seen several pics of Airbus tails at LFBO in the database.

Please help identify
thanks.

GE is getting ready to retire the 747-100 and purchased a former JAL 747-400 some time ago. That could be this plane, getting painted and refurbed for use (this looks like the TAECO facility at XMN).

Not with so much stuff in the foreground. You can upload a tail shot - there's a special category for this, and I've done a few, but this is way too far away and blocked by many buildings, trees, and light pylons. Plus, the quality wouldn't be there.

You have to be VERY close to get a good tail shot:

Or the tails have to be strategically arranged to your advantage, something you can rarely plan for:

I'd disagree with that. While certainly not a great shot (my timing was a bit off), this was taken with a 70-300, probably somewhere around 250mm:

"Two and a Half Men" was filmed in front of a live ostrich.
