Being towed across for its flight. Note how the aircraft is lifted at the front by the super tug to relieve stress on the forward gear. Its seems on this occasion its got a few spectators watching the process. For the car buffs out there, see if you can name each type.

I really like this picture because it just gives you an idea of the sheer size of the 747. Taken from a really good spot.

Two Ford Galaxy (old shape, one is a police car). From back to front, Ford Fiesta Mk III, Nissan Sunny, Mercedes E-Class, Saab 9-3, Suzuki Grand-Vitara.
