I zoomed in on this, to my big screen TV. I can see the number on the line that they parked the front wheels on. Telling me this was either an Airbus A330 or A380 Jetliner.

The #Nexus6P #HDR #Snapseed is a great combination!

Tech pundit. Former editor at Engadget. I blog about mobile. I hack stuff. I'm a developer. I'm queer.
Introduction

Myriam Joire (tnkgrl) was born wearing combat boots and holding a keyboard; moments later she picked up a soldering iron. She's been stomping, typing and hacking ever since. After spending years being a code-monkey in the video game industry, she joined Engadget as Senior Mobile Editor and later Pebble as Chief Evangelist. Today she is VP of Developer Relations at CleverTap, and sometimes freelances as a product/media strategy consultant, and as a tech journalist for TWiT and other major publications. She's based in San Francisco.
