We all heard airline industry has fallen during the lock-down, but since few of us actually travel during these days so we hardly see how actually bad it is.

Photographer Andy Luten who normally travels around average 150,000 miles of flying each year for work and pleasure, has been forced to watch from the ground. But one day, Luten approached a local helicopter company with what would normally be an unusual request, to fly directly over a nearby airport to take photographs of the grounded Spirit Airlines jets that were lining its taxiways. After a successful flight, the next two weeks would see Luten drive over 4,000 miles to photograph six airports in total, documenting the plight of the airline industry.

All below photos were taken around April and May. It is shocking and sad to see these grounded flights. With the things starting to open up, I can sometimes see airplane fly over my head again. Although it is far way from it used to be, but at least they are flying again. Let’s hope we can go through these quickly. Honestly, I don’t really like the “new normal”.
