I took this picture of Heathrow airport a week ago. http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/LHR2.jpg
I can recognize nearly all the plane, except one.
I marked it with a little red dot.
If I wouldn't know better I would say it's a Jetblue A320.
Your thoughts please!

I don't think the proportions is correct for an A320, or even any narrow-body a/c, it looks like a widebody with 4 engines (compare with the BA 747's in the foreground), but it got a shorter fuselage, I go for a Syrianair 747SP.

It's definitely a widebody. Could be an Egyptair 777 or A340 or 747(although if it is, I don't know what it's doing there, taxying that way, unless it was going the long way round to T3 after landing on rwy 09L). The colours are very vague - so it could be a Saudi 777 - but again, I don't know why it would be where it is.
I think we need a better scan if you really want it identifying.

thanks for your responses.
after you suggestions the most likely one seems to be the Syrian 747SP.
We landed short afterwards on 9L and I saw a Syrian 747Sp waiting for line-up for 9R.
Can that be?
Rescanning wouldn't give better results regarding the quality of the plane, maybe I'll re-upload it once I removed some dust with Paint Shop.
