what is it?

 

From his burrow of brightly colored knobs and switches Jim Swindal blinked out through 26000's plastic nose and watched the ribbon of shining concrete race under his landing gear. Air Force One touched down, and he noted the time for his log: 11:38.

what is "the ribbon of shining concrete race under his landing gear"?

Additional Details:

I got it, it's a line direct the plane's landing

    I think this is referring to the reflection of the plane against the runway. It is definitely not a common phrase. Just a way of describing the scene vividly.
