There is something about the contrast between the horses grazing in the fields in the foreground and the 21st Century hardware in the background that really appeals to me. 'India Papa'/'Hot Lips' climbs away from Runway 05L, bound for Barbados.

It says "Harry Potter Wearing World". Isn't it "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"??

I never thought I'd say something like this so seriously, but -wow- those horses really are beautiful! Nice 744 too. Five stars!

Is that an A380 just above the tail of the 747? if so, it's an even more intriguing photo

If there wasn´t second fence behind horses, i would thought it is dangerous to gallop by the runway

For those wondering, this is not an decal for a movie but rather for the "Wizarding World" location at Universal Orlando, FL. Virgin painted the AC to celebrate the opening and 744 to MCO.

The horses are looking the wrong way! ;) I think the "A380" looking thing above the tail is the top of the floodlight! (To poster below!)

It says "Harry Potter Wizarding World" advertising the new feature at Universal Studios in Florida, where Virgin holidays major their industry.

This photo begs the caption: "Only fools (us a.nutters) and horses". Beautiful sight!

This Boeing 747 has Harry Potter on it.
Instead of Snakes On An Airplane, it is Horses Out An Airport. I like this picture.

Great pic! Isn't the 744 technically 20th century equipment?

20th Century - 21st Century: the point is that it is contemporary, highly 'technologised' machinery as compared to what nature has 'developed' (and has been around for 'donkey's years'!).
