Not quite. The aircraft is pointed into wind and the wheels are aligned with the centre line of the runway.

The plane will align itself with the wind, just line up the wheels with the runway.

Hey, wait a damn minute, a Haynes Manual? For our main strategic bomber? Isn't that treason or something?

A flying gun.
In Vietnam we had all the air power, close support would make your day and dust-offs save your life.
We never would have won without them.

Vapor trails, that's how they spread the virus to the 5G towers.

I am having trouble identifying objects in the pic.
This does not seem to help:

Seems to be a lack of airplanes.

This is a screen grab from Google Earth.
It's a bit of a compromise as far as vertical angle v area covered is concerned.
Compare the unlit area to the LHS with the rather low river in this daylight image.
Lack of aircraft visible can probably be explained by it being very late at night when movements are few and far between and a transiting aircraft can get permission to cross approaches or departure routes.

nice work xoB.

Can you tell me about the difference in the colors of the lights? I reckon the orange ones are sodium vapor, the white ones are probably leds or mercury vapor, I guess... but why different colors in different areas?

Sorry to be dense, but how about what functions are done where.
Things like runways, taxiways, ramps, terminals and hangars.
