What immediately strikes me is that pilots are much neater parkers than most drivers.  Cheesy

Tuesday had come down through Dundrum and Foster Avenue, brine-fresh from sea-travel, a corn-yellow sun-drench that called forth the bees at an incustomary hour to their bumbling.

Correct - my original comment gives the clue - "not the first time lots of planes have been parked up" ...

True, but wait until they have to park in a multi-storey.  Cheesy

They're pretty good at that. Until someone on the top storey tries to land.

The last one is of brand new Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 Max-8's, which were parked for other reasons a good while before the current situation.

The one of the four ex-Flybe Q400's is Southampton, where they have now been parked for a month.

I certainly miss the sound of the early SOU-EDI flights that gently woke me from slumbers at OMG o'clock. Flybe were about the only service that audibly overflew chez Oxonhutch
