A photo is a thousand words. An aviation photo can serve as a testament to the essence and magic of flight while also telling a story. Each week, the AirlineGeeks team compiles five aviation photos that tell a story and capture the uniqueness of flight.

Some of us are looking to work in the aviation industry as professionals when we grow older. Some of us are still trying to decide what we want to do. That’s okay though, because we’re all here for the same reason: we love the airlines. We’re the youngest team of airline industry journalists out there. Staff
