The Canadian Air Force Snowbirds are currently doing a COVID-19 Canadian tour, and they passed over my house this afternoon:

Camera was in the wrong mode, and I realised afterwards that the lens is super dirty. Oh well...

No more 747's for them? Only A380?

They have A330s, and I think also A350s.

747s are fairly old these days. The pandemic pushed up the retirement date a bit too.

Just had to remember that the newest one, the 8I, is already 9 years old. Oops.

As a non-plane plane enthusiast, I'm not sure what that says about our airplane fleets, but I couldn't tell much between the 747, 767, 777 and smaller commuter 737, 757, Embraer 175, to airbus a320.

The 747 has a hump on its back, even non plane buffs know what those are.

That’s why you book a window seat and look outside. :mrgreen:

Until you open the shade and see a grease spot from somebody elses head. :sick2:

Hopefully that's no longer an issue.

Confession time: I started packing individually wrapped wet wipes for cleaning the windows. Not because I was worried about “germs”, but because I hate it when a dirty window ruins my photos. One pass with the wipe and another pass with a tissue (a dry and clean one, naturally) work wonders as long as the window itself isn’t scratched too badly.
