I was doing one of my favorite pastimes earlier, browsing A-Net photos, when I came across a British Airways 757 departing Manchester. Quite an impressive shot I must say, but then something got my attention. It appears as if though there are two pentagrams just in front of the wings. Is this true? What are they? Just curious.

mmm, not enough time to browse a little further but enough time to ask the question in two different forums.
I believe accepted etiquette at Airliners.net is to only ask a question or start a thread on a topic in one forum at a time.
They are not pentagrams but stars comprising part of the BBC "Blue Peter" livery on that aircraft.
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

I don't understand... a simple click of the registration reveals more photos of the same aircraft and quite clearly shows the special livery it wears. If browsing photos is one of your favorite pastimes then perhaps you should learn how to use the site.
Most pentagrams are symmetrical and drawn within a circle, the ones on the aircraft are quite clearly freehand drawings by a child. I know as a kid I probably drew a thousand stars that looked identical because it is the easiest way to draw one. Case closed.
