Well, this was back in the olden times, so it was probably just ATA and had to be configured by jumpers.

If you showed a picture of a number of snow covered airplanes at their airport it would probably work though!

 Heart the last two photos you posted, Calapine! 

The Lodz one - I like the symmetry but it would also be an excellent reference for cartography.    Same for the second photo but I think the angle adds an unreal aspect.  At a quick glance, the water almost looks like sky which makes those other ships look like they are flying.

Damn, drove by Lodz many times on my way to other locations, but never actually stopped to stay/visit the city during my tour in Poland.  Bummed about that.  :(

Welcome to Coruscant, make sure all Wookies are up to date on their distemper vaccinations and be careful retrieving Droids from the overhead bins as contents may have shifted during flight.

Those gun turrets look small in comparison to the rest of the ship as a whole. And they are really huge in their own right.

A lot of that width are the torpedo bulges they added to the ship.

"I am not fat, just big boned" Sure... (You are right of course)

Here is an earlier image that looks to be pre-buldge:



Also see:old-school lattice masts. By that the ship still should have had a total of 4 torpedo tubes (one each bow/stern port/starboard-side) but I cant see them.

I see they were able to get it out safely, confined to the upper floors, no one known hurt, and (they say) building in no danger of collapsing.

But what a mess!

Not a roof, but concrete ground. Else correct,the aftermath of a rain shower. Rain is very rare there, one of the reason it was chosen as location.

CCTV camera captured the explosion live:

For a second I thought that might be a tall ship sailing through San Francisco Bay; that street scene could easily be somewhere on Russian Hill in the vicinity of Aquatic Park.  The north bay would be a lot further back in the background, though.

I got to take a sail on this ship (the Lady Washington) last time she was in town:
