This picture is humorous. In it, we can see the wing of a Boeing 747, overlooking a twin-engine long-haul plane. At the bottom of the photo, we can see a passenger announcement made by the pilots. It is a joke saying that both aircraft are about to start a race to see which one arrives first. The sentence “things are about to get real” is an expression meaning that things are getting serious, that the real deal is starting now.
