  • $\begingroup$ I haven't found the best way to credit these images yet, hoping the answer will help in that. They can both be found widely using reverse image lookup with a search engine. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Mar 20 '17 at 12:11

  • $\begingroup$ @OrganicMarble ya, seems to a bit of artistic license there. I'm enjoying the shape of the fins on the middle one - could it be something innovative there? $\endgroup$ – uhoh Mar 20 '17 at 12:50

    $\begingroup$ I'm assuming that's how the fins were really planned based on this: boeingimages.com/Docs/BOE/Media/TR3_WATERMARKED/1/a/8/0/… $\endgroup$ – Schlusstein Mar 20 '17 at 21:31

First image is apparently by Robert McCall


Second is Frederick E Fahdt (also, better image quality)


I've got nothing on the third one.
