Looks like an MD80

If landing is about "kissing" the ground, you just about raped it.

Hi!

Looks like an MD80 to me, but it's quite dificult. When I first saw the picture I could barely see the wings and it looked like a "missile" to me, but then I could see the wings, I can also see the white paiting area for emergency exits and the way the fuselage is extended and the wings I think it's an MD80.
Regards

But, what airline in the US has MD-80s with black wings and tail?

The black wings could just be poor lighting or poor image quality. It was taken from a satalite, after all.

Could just be a Delta MD80 heading back north to Salt Lake
