An elegant synchronicity (top) captured last month at Valais in Switzerland by Olivier Staiger. To wit:

The contrail would normally appear white, but the large volume of air toward the setting Sun preferentially knocks away blue light, giving the reflected trail a bright red hue. Far in the distance, well behind the plane, is a crescent Moon, also slightly reddened….the featured image was taken so soon after sunset that planes in the sky were still in sunlight, as were their contrails.


Pleasing symmetries and patterns observed from above by photographer Mike Kelley, who hired a helicopter to fly him over LAX, the Southern California Logistics Airport,  Boeing Field/King County International Airport in Seattle and the Mojave and Victorville aero-boneyards.

How did he get permission to fly over LAX? Well, he’s had a special relationship with the airport since this photograph went viral in 2014.

Behold the pinstriped opulence of the Embraer Manhattan Private Jet: an Art Deco symphony of mahogany, brass and gold trim: yours for a trifling $80 million.

The interior includes the ‘Cloud Club’ lounge with its bar and panoramic window, the ‘Crystal Room’ where six guests can sit for dinner and a well-appointed main cabin with space for up to nineteen passengers.
