Well yes, a couple of small buildings far in the distance don't exactly enhance a picture of an airplane!!
, an interesting study in composition - crop the left side down, and the picture looses all balance ... big plane/little plane, the weight is all to one side. The two buildings and extra space give a bit more balance to the shot.
But there's more - we've got lots of converging horizontal lines giving the shot a nice perspective - these lines guide the eye along the photo right to the tall buildings which act like a sort of full stop - attention is being drawn to the use of perspective, which is what this shot is all about.
The buildings may have nothing to do with airplanes, but everything to do with photography
