And we need something dogs and cats, Bernistas and Hillarions can all enjoy, check out this fine photograph, uncovered during the indulgence in one of my private vices — wicked cool aircraft stuff:
That’s an Airbus A300-600ST, better known as the Beluga. I tripped across this image while running down a rabbit hole opened by a video I’ll pop up here soon. It’s far from the weirdest transport plane out there. I’ll have more of those soon too, whenever we need our own Taft-
Smoot-Hartley cooling off period. [Per Burnspbesq’s sadly (4 me) accurate correction]
And open thread, too.
ETA: our comment-colleague Dollared has offered another image as a counterpart. Seems to me this is what happens when those sweet young nose sections get all grown up and nasty: it’s down to the river to smoke and drink :
