    Cool find, you should post that as a file. Put it in the 'Aircraft in Flight' though as it is actually in the air. The image is an aerial photograph, and the way the distances work it makes the aircraft seem far larger than it really is.

    It's a Boeing 737 model, but the wingspan measurement of almost 500 feet is obviously bogus due to the aforementioned problem. The A380, after all, only has a wingspan of about 261 feet.

    Wow, I have a couple other planes in flight but I could have swore that it was on the ground. My appologies.

    No need to apologize. I just wanted to point it out and how to tell if an aicraft is on the ground or not in aerial imagery. It's so much easier in the satellite images because of the 'motion ghost' effect.
