No. 5 perhaps a China Eastern A330-200?
No. 6 looks to me like a 747 classic (can't see any winglets) but I can't tell whose it could be. Iran Air new scheme perhaps? One no-one's photographed yet with blue engines? Or Aerolineas Argentinas?
The IR Cargo A300 in the revised scheme has blue eingines - since aircraft in Iran are rarely photographed could it possibly be a 747 classic in the new livery? Just a thought. Otherwise I'm inclined to say Aerolineas Argentinas.

Quoting JakTrax (Reply 9):
Still think 5 is more likely China Eastern than Edelweiss.
I beg to differ
Unfortunately the database is up to it's old tricks so can't provide pictures, but China Eastern's livery has a red cheat line that would show as a band round the rear fuselage, similar to the SQ shot. The red doesn't cover nearly enough of the nose either. Edelweiss is painted to the exact same extent as in the photograph in the original post.
Feel free to prove me wrong as I am totally unfamiliar with Edelweiss' routes but I'm personally quite confident that's what it is
Edit: Here's a couple of pictures to hopefully clear things up a little:

Quoting Plainplane (Reply 7): I think number 6 is Atlas Air. Some of their 747-200s are white with blue engines and incredibly dirty.

Thanks for the helps.
I will post another shots for recognitions. Because I'm not so familiar with civil planes.
I have on question. To capturing full screen shots with high quality of this birds which equipments is required?
There are a few groups online with photos, but I can't find any links at the moment.
For photographic lenses you need at least a 500mm lens with a 2x converter, but then you'll be pushing the exposure limit and will probably need 400-800ISO to get a decent shutter speed. That is unless you've got a very expensive 500mm lens.
Yes, very possible. Do a search for 'digiscoping'. A lot of bird watchers (the feathered variety!) use spotting scopes with compact cameras attached to them with a converter / mounting bracket. You can get focal lengths up to 3,000 - 4,000 mm + with the right system and a big enough budget!
Equipment: 2x Canon EOS 50D; Sigma 10-20 EX DC HSM, 50-500 EX APO DG, Canon 24-105 f/4 L, Speedlite 430EX
