Battling some nasty crosswinds on final approach.
Taxiing to runway 22 in the late afternoon.
This paint scheme + this light = Perfect combo! Notice the jet exhaust smothering the tail of the plane. The wind was blowing it right back at the aircraft.

Looking good for 30 years old! First photo of this registration in the database.
The 100th Airbus taxis onto runway 22 for a three hour flight to JFK.

Showing some symmetry between the paint on the fuselage and the paint on the Cfm Intl CFM56-7B24 Turbofan engine.
The condensation on the fuselage just adds another dimension to this shot.
Nice winter afternoon!
Just inches off of the ground!
