It does look sad, the "eyebrow" gives the plane a sad face, while the engines are hidden to give this plane a "naked" feeling. Excellent composed shot!

Looks a little like a wet dog. I love the subtle flare of the wings.

Wonderful photo in a wonderful place.
I live in La Coruna, and fog in this airpor is very frequent. I hope with the new ILS CAT III we can improve the operationg in days like this.

Notice how this angle makes the wings seem so thin (which they are). Such a clean design.
The fog shroud adds to the eerie look... and no, it doesn't look sad !!

Love it! The plane looks like it's coming at you and should be used in a commercial for this particular airline.

I don't think the word "sad" is the correct word for this photo. I think a better word/words would be mystical or eerie

The MD-80 is a very sleek airliner, as this photo shows. Very interesting angle of view, but not sad.

What makes it special is the engines which are not visible in the picture and the foggy background makes the airplane the only object

Not sad. I think its kind of creepy. The DC-9 sure is an awesome plane.
