    Weird Angled Plane

    Fine, I give it to you, its not really a weird angle, but it is a really sharp turn that looks mighty uncomfortable for its occupants.

    Default shadows

    Interesting problem. I think the distortion must be due to the obliqueness of the photo. Look at the chromatic distortion along the edges, as if the image is stretched out.

    As for the angle of the plane, consider the shadows of the two white structures immediately below the plane. These pipes are presumably flat. We see a similar angle of sunlight on the turning bridge to the south.

    Now look at the shadow made on the port wing. I think it's possible that the plane is level, judging by these shadows.

    Still, though, a cool map weirdness.

    At other angles the plane looks much flatter. I choose this angle because it looks weird.
