This Caravelle jetliner is one of the most impressive display at the Brussels Air Museum in Belgium (Musée de l’Air de Bruxelles). When I composed this photograph, I wanted to give the impression that the airplane just took off from a runway but also how unreal that would look within a hangar—even a huge one! I also love how the rough steel beams contrast with the smooth curves from this classic plane. (July 2015)

The SE 210 Caravelle was the world’s first short/medium-range jet airliner. Introduced in 1955, it was produced by the French Sud Aviation firm. The VI-N version on display at the museum had a capacity of 80 passengers. SABENA was the national airline of Belgium from 1923 to 2001.
