Well thank you Marie, in fact, a double thank you for using yourself as the mannequin Smile It is a big plane! As to flying in it, "ROAST FLIGHT" seems a bit ominous Smile Smile
Rgds., Jim
PS. Tom did well, can we look forward to him becoming a member?

The "Boris Naginsky" is a huge bird. The passenger section only has 2 tiny windows just forward of the wing, but there are bunks and a galley running along the 'hump'. Not too pleasant on long journeys by all accounts.

Looks a massive plane, I was reading about the Antonov 224 recently which apparently is even bigger though I'm not sure its still flying. Many thanks for all the feedback on my images
