Post Your Human vs Plane Size Comparison!

Hi IFC, I was on my way to Switzerland recently and while sitting at the gate I spotted a grounds crew member near the wheel of a Turkish A350-900 and came to the realization (once again) that we are extremely small compared to these aircraft.

Feel free to add more images like these!!

Not quite “human vs plane”, but rather “fuel truck vs engine”. Here’s what a fuel truck looks like next to a GE90-115B:

As for something more “human vs plane”, here are a bunch of people next to a 777:

On the pushback with an E175. May not be impressive as above, but still pretty cool.

The E175 is tiny compared to widebodies, but it’s still huge compared to us!

Face reveal 😎

This is me standing in front of a GE90-94b, fitted on a now retired 777-200ER from AirFrance.


And that’s me in front of the nosewheel of an AirFrance 777-300ER


I took these pictures in the maintenance facilities in CDG airport back in 2022. Also for reference I’m 1m96 (6’5")

Just the gear makes you look small. And 6’5 is no joke 😭
