Who says airplanes can’t be fashionable? The all-black livery of this Air Canada Airbus A320-200 takes center stage on any runway, be it Toronto, New York City, Vancouver or in this case, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP).

Thanks to Charlotte Siobhán for capturing this image of high (flying) fashion.

The A320-200 in this image is part of the Air Canada Jetz chartered airline fleet. The Jetz service has provided flights to corporate clients, NHL teams and acts like U2, Spice Girls and Phil Collins.

Perhaps you’ve been waiting for the moment (all your life) to visit our neighbor to the north, or maybe you really, really want to try authentic poutine. Air Canada offers non-stop flights from PIT to Toronto and Montreal, so you can book a trip and invite some friends to spend a beautiful day or more with you in Canada.

We almost always take a mid-flight glance out the window when approaching a city—phone camera at the ready and of course still in airplane mode—so that we might capture the same image Szczepan Zwolinski did.

This in-flight view of Pittsburgh shows the city’s iconic confluence as viewed from above the Monongahela River. Can you count how many bridges are in this photo?

Thanks for sharing, Charlotte and Szczepan! We hope all your flights, whether to and from Canada or anywhere else, provide memorable aerial views.

Our readers continue to pass along shots of unique aircraft, international airports, historical events, gorgeous views and even family vacation photos for this feature. We love them! Keep them coming — you can click here for submission guidelines.
