Airport Awesomeness I

Perhaps it's the British Airways billboard that recently popped up in town, or perhaps it's the fact that it's been a year since my first overseas adventure, but I'm just itching to hop on a plane again (I LOVE flying, especially the long international ones!) and go explore somewhere new and experience other ways of life! Actually, even just flying again would be awesome.

Hopefully this collection of airport awesomeness will tide me over for a little while :)

Aren't they amazing?!

That British Airways billboard I spotted in town.

How lovely are these ladies? Lady on the right is especially lovely - look at that awesome 50's vintage look she's got going on!

Airport Illustrations
Brad Woodward's "Whatever Happened to First Class?" Illustration

Brad Woodward based his illustration on a haiku from a New York Times article entitled "Whatever Happened to First Class?" 

The haiku: 

"Glory days of flight 
Attendants wore white gloves, suits
It's peanuts, neck cramps"

Maria Zaikina's Cover for Le Cool Moscow

U2's Beautiful Day Music Video

Who can forget this amazing moment from U2's Beautiful Day music video? I can't think of anything more epic than U2 playing their tunes on carpets down the runway! Apparently this was filmed at Paris-Charles DeGaulle.

Some pics of the beginning of an amazing overseas adventure.

 Our plane!

Tata for now!
