Maybe someone in Northern Europe can assist in this question.

Is this some cool looking deicing procedure, or is it just playing with lights.

It's UPS's new intergalactic delivery service. They're beaming cans up to the mother ship.  Wink

Deicing with a rather long exposure time.. you can see the boom moving, and the blur of a plane or truck in the background.


I don't care what you think of my opinion. It's my opinion, so have a nice day :)

I think it's one of the spaceships from "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" hovering over the aircraft just like they did Richard Dreyfuss's pick-up truck....  Wink

Seriously, judging from the blurred lights, it looks like a time exposure with maybe the spray from some de-icing fluid tossed in.

Cool picture indeed...

If you look close, near the nose gear, you can see Francois Truffaud and his hand signals. Put your screen close to your ear and you can hear the all-to-familiar theme.

Is this the answer to what was apparently seen at O'Hare a few days ago?  Big grin

It is only de-icing. It is one of those time laps pictures.
