Photo by @vimanspotter - Golden plane? Must be very heavy! Aesthetics aside painting an aircraft has performance benefits. A study by @Boeing explains that paint on an aircraft reduces surface (aluminum) roughness, dirt, and insect accumulation, which in turn reduce drag 🌬 Paint also absorbs less heat. Although unpainted planes are lighter, it’s much better to paint the plane for better cooling efficiency! That’s part of the reason why @AmericanAir switched from the old “mirror livery” to paint their planes in the new livery we all love and know today back in 2013 ✈️

#TailTuesday with a side of size comparisons by @lairdkay 🛩 Just check out how the A380 tail looks bigger than the Hawker 750 and about the same size as the Dassault Falcon (vertically according to @pilot.alexander)! Have a beautiful Tuesday fellow aviators 💙

Top Shot by @vador_pictures! The F-16A Fighting Falcon looks very graceful yet imposing... Did you know that the F-16’s thrust is almost twice that of an @Embraer ERJ140? That’s 14,670 lbf WITHOUT the afterburner! Happy 50 Years to the Brazilian aerospace manufacturer @Embraer! /

Need some #MondayMotivation? @french.flyer’s got you covered with this awesome photo and I’ve got you covered with this quote: "Great pilots are made not born... A man may possess good eyesight, sensitive hands, and perfect coordination, but the end result is only fashioned by steady coaching, much practice, and experience." -Unknown ✈️ This doesn’t apply to just pilots. This applies to anyone who’s trying to be great at something! Have a beautiful Monday avgeeks ✌️

Quetzalcoatl the feather serpent, a mythical hero for the Mesoamerican people, beautifully painted on the @Aeromexico -9 captured by @jfkjetsofficial departing JFK / Painting cultural liveries on flag carriers such as @Aeromexico is probably the coolest ways to represent the airline’s country all over the world 🌎 Remember when @AirNZ painted one of their 777s into the Hobbit “Airline of Middle Earth” livery? The Hobbit film series was shot entirely in New Zealand and the livery definitely captured the magic and beauty of that movie and the country! So in short: I love special cultural liveries! What’s your favorite special livery? /

The globetrotting Globemaster C-17 by @etops_exposure seen rocketing out of YXX 🛫 Although out of production it still rules the skies as a large military transporter for many air forces / The C-17 was developed from the smaller McDonnell Douglas YC-15 (second photo) in 1981 and I can’t help but think that the C-17 looks like a YC-15 after boot camp! Ever wondered what life is like for a C-17 pilot? Check out @vectors_to_final 💪 /

Humidity can be such a discomfort and annoyance... but in this case it can be something beautiful 🥰 Shot by @inside_schiphol of a @klm MD-11 coming in to land on runway 06 “Kaagbaan” after sunrise on a humid morning in EHAM 💨

Somewhere over the rainbow shot by @sfo.spotter 🌈 Nippon Cargo 747-8F taking off with a beautiful aerodynamic contrail 💨 This is formed by the reduction of air pressure in the air as it moves over the wing. As the pressure of gas falls so does the temperature. Reduced temperature cause drops of water to condense, in which all drops have different optical properties which then affect different wavelengths of light, hence the rainbow-look 🌈 I hope your weekend is restful and beautiful! /

#ThrowbackThursday shot of an AC A319 in the Trans-Canada Air Lines livery by @laaviation 🍁 Trans-Canada Airlines was the original name of @AirCanada when it was founded in 1937 until it was renamed to the Air Canada we all know and love today in 1965 / Have a throwback Thursday avgeeks!

What’s your opinion about Air India? Photo by @mumbaiairspace, did you know that Air India was the first airline in Asia to operate a jet and the first airline in the world to operate an all-jet fleet in 1962? At the time the Boeing 707 was the backbone of Air India’s fleet before its last flight in 1986 ✈️ Have a throwback Thursday avgeeks! /
