Remarks: Inside the (pretty clean) A380 engine front. Note the interesting mesh that surrounds the inside of the nacelle front, unlike those of many other jet engines. I almost felt like climbing in there to polish the spinner!
Remarks: Seats up front on this massive A380...notice all the headroom below the overhead bins for when you stand up. If you look carefully between the seats, you'll see two small lights, one per seat, rather than having them overhead (which would be too high).
Remarks: SIA's "new" Business Class seats in their A380's first visit to JFK. The new Business Class features 60 seats onboard the A380, providing each passenger with a length of 76 inches when fully extended, ensuring a new, incline flat seat on which to sleep, offering an unprecedented amount of comfort and rest. Measuring 34 inches (1 m) in width, the new Business Class seat is almost 50 percent wider than most products in this class. Each seat also has a personal 15.4 inch (~ 0.4 m) LCD screen with access to hundreds of on-screen TV programs and music (1200x800 pixels).
Remarks: The massive Qantas A380 on its second landing ever at LAX, returning from its two hour sightseeing ride north to San Francisco. Notice the two people trying to photograph each other in the lower right corner, and note only inner thrust reverser on this jet.
Remarks: The laser eye surgery center, for treating conditions which do not require more elaborate surgery. Notice the TV monitor in the upper left, projecting what is happening in the OR (the room to the right, with windows shown).
Remarks: "1, 2, 3" at the top could only give one clue...it's a three-holer. American Airlines' former Singer-Link 727-200 simulator at the Wings of Eagle aviation museum. See the flight engineer's panel here;
Image #6856289 (1200x800 pixels). Unfortunately, as of 2012, this museum is gone and has been replaced by a Sikorsky helicopter plant.
Remarks: Leaving JFK, just about two minutes after takeoff, passing over New York City. Just visible here out the window is the Verrazano Narrows bridge, connecting Brooklyn (on the right) with Staten Island (on the left). This is the bridge where the NYC marathon starts on the first Sunday of November. If you look very carefully just above it, you may see Newark Airport (EWR). A great day and great airline to match.
Remarks: The Sultan of Brunei left his 747 V8-ALI parked for a few days here at LAX, next to Gulfstream GV-SP N900ES. Notice the wings of this 747 are entirely painted dark gray, the same color as the belly of the jet (1200x800 pixels).
Remarks: The morning lineup at Manchester's Terminal 2 is impressive, with up to about twenty jetliners at its busiest parked at gates exchanging passengers here in England. Notice the impressive perspective leading your view to the distant-most jet (USAirways A330), created by both the jets themselves (left of the image) and the jet bridges as they meet at the building (right of the image).
