Is crossing the threshold of runway 16R at Tokyo Narita. This is what happens the very shining aircraft over the piano key. Although it was chilly and dull winter afternoon, I was so fascinated. At the time when this photo was taken, since Northwest had already introduced the "new" color scheme, I was lucky enough to capture it before it would be gone. This photo will go to a world famous artist, Isamu Noguchi who is supposed to design this great color scheme.

Nice photo, but the color scheme was sub-par. As a Norhtwest pilot, I must say, I like the new brushed silver body more.
