Taxiing out of CLE, we saw this UAE 747 on the tarmac. Is it a commercial aircraft, or maybe government/diplomatic? Sorry the photo quality is pretty lame. 

Read this last night randomly, and saw the plane in a back lot in lax today.

No, was driving by and couldn't stop, one of the kids actually noticed it first

That's too bad, I would love to know what the story is with it.

I was flying QF 7 / SYD-DFW and asked to go on boarded before the masses so I could get pictures of an entirely empty A380.

Some recent pictures:

Landing at Ljubljana, Slovenia (LJU):



Landing at Podgorica, Montenegro (TGD). Due to the mountainous terrain, this airport has one of the weirdest approaches that I know of: you come in high right above the airport, and then literally do a slow spiral to get down.

Flying right over the airport, during the second spiral:



Skadar Lake National Park:





Flying low over Skadar Lake during the third spiral:



Final approach over Podgorica:



Takeoff from Zagreb, Croatia (ZAG):



Takeoff from Tromsø, Norway (TOS):



Flying over Svalbard:



The tiny Russian settlement of Barentsburg, on approach to Longyearbyen, Svalbard (LYR):
