    Alright all you plane buffs, anyone able to identify what kind of plane this is from the picture? I have no idea if you're right or wrong, which is part of why I'm asking. But I'm actually curious if any of you can see just be looking at the underside.

    Anyone know?

    Either a C-5 or a coordinate plane.

    It's commercial, I believe. Landing @ Reagan.

    Looks like a B-737 to me.

    if you'd post a pic, sure. I studied and 'was' good at ID'ing 200+ different aircraft. We'd test; Slide projector - 2 seconds on screen 6 seconds between shots (so one could write one's answer).

    :)

    I was thinking hydro, but air does seem to make more sense...

    A boeing 737 for sure...

    If it were an Airbus A3, it'd have the wing-tabs on the end of its wings...
