Is this really a Boeing 747? The leading edge slats don’t look like a B747 slats.
Is it possible that it is a B747-400ER and Boeing changed the LE slats?
What are the small “wings” on the engines?

Thanks




Long live the B747

Nope its not a 747, its not KLM and it isnt Schiphol either. I submitted a correction, but I think its impossible to fill in all the details to make it work!

That looks like an A340 to me, but I could be wrong....

Make your own minds up:

This is a KLM B744

Since when did CFM supply engines for the 747????
Also, those are petal reversers....
It's an A340.

As the "CFM" stickers look relatively new, IMHO this is an Airbus A340-300E.

I don´t know if it´s a 200 or a 300, but I´m 100% sure it´s an Airbus A340...definitely.

Definetly a A340.
Maybe China Southern Airlines???

The engines on 747s use cascade reversers, the slats are not the same as on a 747, and the winglet is definetly not the same as on a 747

Guessing that it is landing at an airport somewhere in China.

And looking at the background.. it seems like it's a Chinese airport...

Looks like an A340, hands down. Although, I think this has been mentioned already.  Big thumbs up

Cheers!

Wow, that's my pic. Why there is another name? I took it landing in Guangzhou last week.

What happened?

By the way it is an AF A340-300.

Can anyone explain why my pic is under another name?

If you open it, you can clearly see that the copyright is under my name, Daniele saracco.

Any info?

Wow, I think someone here needs to give Daniele a good explanation here....

The photo says Copyright Daniele Saracco, but the 'Author' is incorrect on the table, it has to be identical. The airport should be Guangzhou, not Amsterdam. The airplane is an AF 343 as AZ just explained.

Hola Mati, how are you?

Hey guys, it is extremely hard to have photos accepted here, but if they do, why not giving credits to the potographer, in this case me? Big grin

Perhaps it was overwritten by a file with a similiar name? What filename did you use to upload the picture?

Hey Dani! I'm fine, at least they didn't stole any pic yet from me!  Laugh out loud
Anyway, guys, no moderators around?
I hope they fix this fast, otherwise I will get mad on someone  Angry

We are still waiting for a good explanation and an excuse.

Regards to the other end of the world,

I can't remember it, but I'm sure I used a complex filename so as to avoid it.

What do you suggest to do?

Hi Daniele,

There is a Site Related forum. Try to ask over there. You probably get an answer.

That's probably what's happened.

Just as an FYI: Those little wings on the engine are called "strakes". You also see them on the MD-80 and some other aircraft.

Hasn't Johan implemented software that overwriting afilenames is impossible from now on?

Anyway, seen the inserted data, your details were clearly overwritten.

I put A340-3... as aircraft: if you have the details, you can always drop me an email (check my profile) with the registration of your aircraft so that the correct aircraft type and c/n can be added.

I counted 17 submitted corrections for this picture, with the most diversified answers what it could be and not could be! Big grin
