This is Scandinavian 101
Flight from Hawaii coming out of the sun
Kennedy, you should be in sight
We can't see a thing here in the night
Navigator says we're on the flight path
There's no radio, no sign of life
This is Scandinavian 101
For God's sake get the ground lights on

It's Strangers in the Night by Saxon...As you may be able to tell from the lyrics, it's about an airport that loses power at night, so the planes aren't able to land and can only keep circling until they run out of fuel. I'm kind of a plane nerd so the song appeals to me. Thanks for the comment :) - the song

A little over-dithered, but that's to be expected from a low color count.

Awesome piece, nonetheless. The lyrics(?) are pretty cool, too. What song is that? And who's it by?

 I count 9 colors not 5. 


Really nice job though!

Thanks - originally it was a lot brighter and the plane was grey, but I felt it didn't make sense...if the plane was flying at night, realistically it'd be very hard to see in the sky at night. Saxon absolutely own and Strangers in the Night is definitely one of my favorite songs from them, and this is exactly what I saw whenever I listened to it. Great song 8)

Thanks for the comment and CC

Wow, I remembered exactly Strangers in The Night when saw title of this picture! I like to play it on guitar from time to time (what a great riff!) and I was on Saxon concert several years ago.

Nice moody scene with lots of detail, but perhaps it should be a bit brighter.
