Really Big Fins…

Big Fins

I had a layover on some travels┬árecently and was struck by how insane the finage on this 747 aircraft was. That tail fin is like 10 feet thick at the base! According to Wikipedia, the 747 cruises at Mach .85. That’s a lot of fin to push through the air at that speed. Of course at 30k+ feet in the air there’s not as much to hold you back. Still pretty crazy though. More info on the 747 here.

Bonus points for guessing which airport this is. There are a few pretty good clues in the background for those who know the area!
