Hey, that plane is smiling!


Photo of the aforementioned smiling aeroplane!

Smiling Lockheed L1011 taken in August 1974 by Piergiuliano Chesi. Clearly one doesn't need to be an anime character without pants to be an anthropomorphic aircraft, just saying ;).

In related news, the only L1011 diecast model I have had its forward landing gear and parts of the tail damaged during the latest move. I don't suppose I can get tiny 1mm wheel replacements?
