They are Rolls Royce Trent 500's.

This is the only engine available on the A340-600's.

The standard engines are rated at 56'000lb of thrust, but Airbus recently offered an optional 60,000lb thrust option.

There big white engines with fan things in them and some pipes and stuff being held in there with screws and stuff.

When you turn them on, hot air comes out the back.

Dont forget those pointy swirly things in the front that make you dizzy.
