    The shape and paintwork on the tail make this look like a poorly-done Photoshop job, so I looked up other angles. The white tail blends in with the farmland grid below, but if you look carefully you can see the bottom edge of the tail boom just aft of the S-shaped paintwork.

    Nope, it's a poor photoshop job on the original photo. The lower tail is half missing, as you can see in this photo. Not sure why they decided to change it, maybe copyright reasons?

    I can see the entire tail in the over-ground photo - even the white portion. You may need to zoom in, but it's all there. And they're different photos. The one you show has a slightly different angle, showing more of the tail boom, and the lighting is coming from low starboard ahead in the over-ground photo and high aft in the over-sea photo.
