BMI Lifting OffBMI Lifting Off

Description
A plane taking flight. It is a medium sized white, blue, and red commercial jet liner. On it's way up into the wide open air where it will transport passengers safely to their destinations. The landing gear is still down so you can tell that the plane has recently taken flight. The angle of the plane in the sky also tells that the plane is still gaining altitude. It looks graceful in the sky, almost as if it were supposed to be there.

BMI A330 LandingBMI A330 Landing

Description
British Midland International flies two Airbus A330-200 from its operational base in London Heathrow Airports. BMI operates around 2000 flights per week on its 27 aircraft fleet to Europe, Middle East, Central Asia and Africa. Airbus A330 is a wide-body jet airliner with twin turbofan engine from Airbus, a subsidiary of EADS (European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company N.V.). It is the first Airbus model that offers three engine choices: General Electric CF6, Pratt & Whitney PW4000, and Rolls-Royce Trent 700. A330 incorporates fly-by-wire flight control. The A330-200 is a shorter body but longer range variant from the original A330-300. It entered service in 1988. As of December 2011, 572 of the -200 had been ordered, 444 of which had been delivered, with 440 aircraft in operation. These facts reveal that it is the more popular model from the original -300. It is directly in opposition with Boeing’s 767-300ER, and soon 787 Dreamliner.

A-10 on RampA-10 on Ramp

Description
The Flying Pig, Warthog, and Hog are all nicknames for the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II, an American single-seat, twin-engine, straight-wing jet aircraft developed by Fairchild-Republic in the early 1970s. Known for its ability to offensively conduct missions against armoured ground forces have made the Warthog a formidable opponent to any military. Unlike most aircraft, the Warthog was designed around the GAU-8 Avenger, a heavy rotary cannon which forms the aircraft's primary armament. The cannon is the heaviest rotary canon ever mounted on an aircraft. Not only is the Warthog a strong offensive aircraft, but it was also designed with survival as a priority, including and incorporating a strengthened hull and other protective measures. The first Warthog unit was deployed in 1976 and the first Warthog to receive combat readiness was in 1978. The A10 operated in the Gulf War and the Balkans for the United States Airforce and Royal Air Force. The A-10 is scheduled to be in service with the USAF until 2028 and possibly later.
