Post a picture of the last plane you flew on

Pretty self explanatory: Post a single picture you took of the last plane you flew on. Every time you take a flight, feel free to post again. Hopefully we can have a nice stream of pictures of planes FTers have been on recently.

I'll start:

Asiana A330-300 HL8293, from Shanghai Pudong to Seoul Incheon. Bonus tarmac boarding

Nice photos. How did you get permission to take the photo inside the factory?

My first post here... I recently traveled on the LAST B747 flight on the Hong Kong-San Francisco United route...Attaching a photo from the takeoff in Hong Kong. Will miss the B747 - I have taken that and other flights on the Jumbo Jet from Asia to the US for over 25 years...

As you see, your photo did not link to your post. When you see your photo on the travel-photos-52 site, do not copy the link in the browser bar, instead right-click and select 'copy image address'. Use that link with the FT 'Insert Image' tool and that should post your photo. I tried to do it for you, but apparently travel photos 52 did not let me access the content.

Sorted through LH. I was able to walk the floor of the assembly buildings and had access to virtually everything except the Gov't section. Unfortunately the photos I took inside the plant can't be published to due my agreeement with Boeing. The 787 photo was technically not taken inside the facility so I can publish 'hangar' shots like that.

I love those things. Back where I grew up they seemed to bring them specifically to the local closed air force base to fix up because they would often be doing a lot of touch and goes during the summer. So huge.

Just an amusing anecdote.

I'm sitting outside having lunch with friends today and one looks up and makes a cos/chemtrail joke.

I said it's probably a 747 or A380 because you can see a small split which would be 4 engines.

Other friend poses the "I wonder where it's going?"

I mentioned probably LAX because a lot of the TPACs fly over Monterey and down the Valley but I'd find out.

I go to FlightRadar24 find the plane and mention it's an Asiana A380 going Seoul - LAX.

"Do you really have an app that tells you that?"

yes.

"You're so weird."
