If you notice the shape of the hangar doors, or rather the distortion of them, you'll realize that the picture was taken with a nasty old (near
fisheye - the true fisheye lens includes the whole 180 degree hemisphere in front of the camera) wide angle lens - perhaps a 14mm lens on a 35mm
camera - the usual wide angle lens for a 35mm camera is about 28mm, shorter than that creates major distortions.
If you have never used such a lens, let me assure you that it distorts shape so much that it is nigh-on impossible for the photographer to achieve a
level 'horizon' - so it's not leaning to one side - note the difference in apparent height of the base of the hangar doors in the background from
one side to the other - also note the apparent curvature of the panel lines of the floor paneling (very artistic, but not the usual hangar floor
The camera wasn't level!
