This picture really shows how large aircraft like these really are, especially the 747. The cars look like midgets compared to them. 5 Stars all the way!

Nothing like sharing the open road with a Jumbo! Not seeing any part of the airport makes this photo all the more interesting. Job well done.

Is this the latest livery of UA? Sorry for being such a noob in knowing stuff about US airlines, but it seemed more "logical" to me that that dark grey livery was their latest, cos it looked more modern to me (and I liked a little better than this one), but then I checked out the date of this pic, and I realized it must be their latest, or am I wrong?

Captain Smith? This is OnStar... Proceed to the next exit and turn right. Then go four blocks and you should see the dry cleaners on the left hand side.

I've only seen a 747 once in my life at barbados airport in jan 2006 ever since i've been excited to see them again...what a lovely shot of one again and the surrounding traffic seem so insignificant with this beast at the centre of attention

And the First Officer tells the Captain:
"I think we missed our exit to Taxiway B12. I think we got lost."
