Emirates - A6-EWA
Emirates 216 takes off to start its return journey to Dubai. This is the longest flight in the sprawling, fast-growing Emirates network.
In the background, another ultra-long-haul flight, the all-business Singapore 38 nonstop from Singapore, is about to arrive at its gate at Bradley Terminal.
It's almost sunset, and the air is starting to cool down fast. There is some mist on top of the 777's wing.
