Lunchtime Photo

One of the great things about photography as a hobby is that I don’t get bored in airports anymore. Instead, I wander around looking for things to take pictures of. This is a plane taking off at Heathrow while we waited around for our flight home in October. The funky colors are partly due to the clouds and partly due to the glass I took the picture through. I don’t know what kind of plane it is, but I’ll bet someone in comments can ID it.

UDPATE: The consensus in comments is that it’s either a 737 or a 757 or a 767 or an Airbus A320. Thanks a lot, folks.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
