Kamran- The pictogram you pointed out is the international symbol for Aircraft Arrivals. If the symbol was more accurate- showing the plane more level or even flaring, it would be easily confused with Departures.

The symbol is standard throughout the world, as well.



Someday, we'll look back at this, laugh nervously, and then change the subject.

It's "slam Dunking" at 30 degrees as in MattDs post. LOL at the 30 degree figure.


Damn, this website is getting worse daily.
