Beacon flash! A7-BBD sails in over the numbers for 18L on Qatar’s inaugural flight to DFW on 1 July. Since Qatar Airways’s founding in 1993, the oryx has been its logo and tail design. There are four oryx species- three native to Africa and the fourth, the Arabian oryx, native to the Middle East. The smallest of the oryx species, the Arabian oryx is what’s depicted on the Qatar tail design. This species of Oryx has been a small conservation victory- in 1972 it was declared extinct in the wild (or ecologically extinct) with only captive populations left. But starting in 1982 the Arabian oryx has been progressively reintroduced into the wild primarily among the Gulf states. In 2011 this was the first species to get upgraded from extinct in the wild to vulnerable, a testament to the conservation efforts. #Avgeek #aviation #aircraft #planeporn #kdfw #dfw #airport #igtexas #planespotting #airlines #boeing #777 #QatarAirways #dfwavgeek #instadfw #instagramaviation #A7BBD #avgeekery #instaspotting #avgeekschoolofknowledge (at DFW Founders Plaza)

Went rafting, saw some new Boeing 737 fuselages in the river. No biggie.

I live in Missoula - several miles from the derailment. What’s humorous about is that boats are being blocked by planes that fell off of a train.

Well now theres a story

Shit, there goes several hundred million $ we’ll never see again. Signed, Boeing
