AstridAir is more stylish than that cut-rate ChadAir!
Picturit: AstridAir might be a strong competition.
This is great! I love the new paint jobs on these American Airline planes!
Picturit: There were some board meetings necessary to come to this verdict..... HA.

Jolis mélanges de couleurs. J'aime la façon dont tu marques toujours ton nom.
Picturit: Thank you so much, Martine. Putting my name in is my most joy, often when I capture something I already know the name placement.
It looks like the tails win it by a long shot, Astrid. Next time let's fly AstridAir just to say we did it. smile
Picturit: Okay 'tails' it is...... wouldn't that be something to have an airplane with my name....just one good lottery ticket and we might make that happen HA.....

This is a fine composition Astrid. I see you have your own airline now, it's bound to be better than another we could mention..
Picturit: Thank you, Chris. I love to see all the things going on on an airfield. We better not mention the competition by name....wink grin
Wouah ..Astrid air le top !!
Belle composition
Bonne journée Astrid
Picturit: Thank you so much for your kind words, I love these radiant colours and we were at the right spot to have a great overview of the airfield.

Bad for business, all these 'planes on the ground. Since it seems to be your airline, you got to do something about it.
Picturit: They were all waiting for take off but the runway was blocked by an airplane from 'ChadAir'....they had a flat tire......

A funny title - and you have your own airline - is this the Dutch airline Astrid? A wonderful photo - I assume we are on Shiphol airport.
Picturit: 'Heads or tails' is said when people flip a coin, like at the start of a match, who is to start first..... when I saw all those 'tails' of those airplanes, the title came into my head... wink ..this is American Airlines and we are still in Connecticut.
Astridair is much more upmarket than Chadair
Picturit: I thought so too. The board of directors wanted to have some bright colours.

Nice lines.
Picturit: Thank you, Anne
Chadair is looking well.
Picturit: There was a mutiny and we made one 'AstridAir'.......
I go for tails Astrid.
Picturit: Tails it is, Brian.... I already knew the title when I took this picture...
Greqt point of view to capture those tail fins
Picturit: Thank you, Tom. I was so lucky that we had this overview. I love to look outside the window at an airfield, so much to see.
I like that wingtip...
Picturit: The pilot was doing the last checkup before taking off and he flipped the wing-brakes too.

A cracking image. I wonder if the marketing people would like it as it only hints at a branding.? Subliminal advertising?
Picturit: Thank you, Alan. The name American Airlines was painted at the body of the airplane... however the tail was very obvious it is American.
There was a mutiny though....I took one of the planes......grin
