Never seen better how big she really is...

A plane has been sitting on the run way for an hour - waiting for bad weather (heavy thunderstoms to subside)before take-off. In such a scenario, who clears the plane to fly? The traffic controllers or the captain? It has been reported in the media that the captain of the ill-fated Kenyan decided to depart meanwhile other airlines were waiting for the weather to improve. How can a pilot decide to fly knowing the weather is bad? Who calls the short? The weather men or the aircraft captain?

I recently went to Japan and visited haneda domestic airport and narita international airport. They both have huge observation decks where you get some fantastic photos - one of 3 extended jal 777's , one rotating, one in the gate, and one taxiing......fantastic

Although JAL is phasing out this color scheme, this B777-346 looks great.

A visitor from Dominican Republic posted Wed October 19, 2005:
Nice photo. For those that don't know, the aircraft is called Deneb, and have a cygnus because, Deneb is the name of the most bright star of the constellation Cygnus =)

A visitor from Japan posted Wed October 19, 2005:
Oh, yes it is a very Japanese traditional way to send those passengers off.
And to my friend in Puerto rico, seems that only a few 777s are left in old colours, and in new colours, the names of the stars are gone...

The neck of the B777-346 is most beautiful! Love it!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue October 18, 2005:
Superb!

A visitor from Puerto Rico posted Tue October 18, 2005:
AWESOME SHOT! So JAL planes are named after stars? Its great to see Deneb on that plane, since Astronomy is another thing I love! Gotta be paying attention to JAL planes fron now on.

No... Skymark airline is a japanese airline. Nice pic.

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 18, 2005:
First time I saw this was at NRT and a Korean Air jet was pushing back ... I thought it was some sort of wartime repentance but no, they do it for everyone!

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 18, 2005:
Nevermind about the Skymarks question. See what happens when you ask a question after you just wake up, eaten no food and decide not to look up simple information?

A visitor from Australia posted Tue October 18, 2005:
Ya gotta love it

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 18, 2005:
Neat! Now I have a reason to go to Japan. Thanks!

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 18, 2005:
That has to make the crew and pax feel good. I'm curious, Skymark is a British airline isn't it? Do they fly to Japan with a stop over somewhere?
