I hate to eat while having to breath in vehicle exhaust fumes.

 

Indoors for me. Unless it is well away from traffic.

I guess it's a matter of choosing your poison -- sit outside and inhale toxic exhaust fumes or sit inside and possibly mingle with nasty coronavirus particles. Neither is a wonderful option.

I find mask-wearing to be totally weird, but necessary of course. I guess the girl sitting on the left is the rebel in the family.

In Nicaragua, people are mostly wearing mask.  Banks and some stores require them.

I'm surprised there isn't another sign stating "beware of the swan" as they seem to have just about covered all other bases.

COVID-19 has pretty much seen the end of passenger carrying 747s - the Queen of the Skies - bringing forward retirements which would otherwise have seen them in use for another four or five years. Virgin Atlantic and British Airways each had a pair in storage at Heathrow due to go either for cargo conversion or scrapping, with the penultimate Virgin departure planned for Saturday just gone. Three changes of runway meant for a great deal of hiking around the perimeter, in the wind and rain, with a last minute rush to catch its lifting off on the first leg of its journey to Arizona, and a whittling down of 'spotters' to just myself to get the shot (perseverance/madness?). I haven't seen any Alamy uses but hopefully direct magazine sales will be fruitful.

I had a go on one when I flew to NYC in 2019. Paid more than I should have to fly across the Atlantic in economy but it meant I a) got to fly on a 747, which is reason enough and b) got to sit in the top deck, with Virgin being the only company I know of that run economy seating up there. It was a very memorable trip for several reasons but the plane was a big part of it. Nothing quite like looking out of the window and seeing two big engines instead of one. Great pic by the way.

Thank you. My first ever flight was in a BA 747 in the late eighties heading to New Zealand.  The take off was in extremely bad weather with it dropping and climbing and the overhead lockers rattling, and so I assumed that this was what flying was like and we had a total of around 48 hours of this, there and back! Thankfully it proved not to be quite that bad

Just realised that plane you photographed is G-VROM - Barbarella - which is the one I flew out on. The one you flew on with BA in the late 80s was, I'm guessing either a -100 or a -200 and would have had three people in the flight deck and little in the way of glass too! My first flight was a 757-200 with the airline "Flying colours".

'City of Stoke on Trent', a -200, and still flying as a cargo conversion. When they name them it does give them a character that the plain ones don't have.

Here in my country Singapore. Automated self check-in kiosks are closed due to the massive decline of passengers flying out of the country during the Covid 19 pandemic crisis.

Manual check-in counters at Changi Airport Terminal 3 is deserted, is a very sad scene for the aviation industry during this Covid 19 climax

This graffiti appeared on a road bridge near me recently. I guess it sums up what we're all wondering.

In my opinion the Human race will be extinct in another 2000 years if not sooner due to covid 19 and/or global warming.

Yes, a loose coalition of dolphins and cockroaches is already planning to take over the reins of power on planet Earth. I can't imagine that we are known to the rest of the animal world as homo sapiens...  🙁

Haha. Sadly I think the dolphins might be a victim of our plastic waste, including all those single-use face masks so many people are using, but some of the insect world might outlive us! Ants definitely do a better job of working together for the benefit of all.
