Them's them "filters" and stuff they like to use these days. I think they went OVERBOARD on these.   ;D    The first one is a panorama shot which makes it look a little weird because it's up close but the hazy stuff and... color correction or whatever they tried is a bit much. I'd rather just a plain ol' picture if it's not terrible.

That Costa Rican bar looks like an illustration ?

Just some adjustment of colour levels in your favourite flavor of image editing software.

I turned 31 a couple of days ago and I completely agree - that level of filter/whatever is ridiculous! What a cool establishment, though.
I find it very hard to believe Academy would make a mistake like that he said sarcastically...

There's a DC3 up the line from me, which is now a tearoom...

That's killer! I actually really like that livery. These current airliner ad firms could take a lesson from this.  ;D 

I had to look up that cookie time:


Damn, now I'm hungry!!!!  And.... call me crazy but that would make some rather effective desert/harsh terrain camo in certain regions!  ;D ;D ;D     I mean, Desert Storm camo wasn't called "chocolate chip" for nothin'.  ;D



This reminds me, there's a DC-10 turned restaraunt in Ghana:




Airline pilot blogger type said he ate there and it was pretty good and of course who wouldn't want to climb way the hell up in a DC-10 and hang out? It's recently be re-painted to look more like how it used to.

The restaraunt in 2002 in Dusseldorf:

OK, You're Crazy! (well, you did ask...)
Yeah, once you lose the Corporate logos, it would be a pretty effective camouflage - or at least it'd stop people shooting at you, by making them head out for a snack!  ;D

Now let me give you this:

... you're welcome! And I can recommend the Triple Chocolate and Apricot & Chocolate Chip varieties... nom nom!  :thumbsup:

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I have eaten in a bar/cafe that had been converted from a Dakota fuselage, but I'll be **** if I can remember where ??? I'm gradually sorting old photos out so might come across it ?

Love that KC-97 café!  :wub:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
