I am curious why the A300 aircraft pictured in the centre (N660FE) has very unique weathering on the tail, especially compared to the tail in the left and right of the plane in question? It is more obvious with the late-day sun, hence the yellow glow/hue to the picture. Usually FedEx machines are pretty well kept, from what I have seen.
Is it purely weathering? None of the other photos of "N660FE" on a.net have a good view of the left side tail, so I can't get an idea of how long this discolouring has been there.
