Fri Apr 07, 2006 5:58 pm

The last one's an Antonov An-124. The third one looks to be an Uzbekistan Airways 767. Number one's a 747, 2 an A340, but the operators could be anyone...

First: 744, no idea on the airline, could be AF or JAL given the white fuselage
Second: A340-300, suspect AF here as well.
Third: 767, ,no further idea
Fourth: Antonov Airlines AN-124

Cool, Which airline could the AN-124 be? I thought it may be Aeroflot initially but i have no clue.

2 - LH A343

Can't be, LH planes have a distinctive grey belly, whereas the on here is white like the rest of the fuselage.

nope, definitely not QANTAS.. not red enough on the empenage. And remember, it's spelled QANTAS, not Quantas...

Quoting CHRISBA777ER (Reply 7):
1 - AI 744

Don't think it's AI either, AI has a grey belly, but this one is completely white... Definitely a 744

Quoting CHRISBA777ER (Reply 7):
2 - LH A343

Hmm.. LH also has some grey belly unless it's the Star Alliance livery.. Although I can't really tell if it is grey or white... but as far as i can see, there's no colour border between grey and white.. so I suspect it's a totally white fuselage. But definitely an A343

Don't think it's JAL : JAL's B744 have their registration number written in large characters under the right wing beteen engines 1 and 2.

The first picture, though a 744 for sure, has a dark stripe at the back. Not a stripe exactly, but the fuselage ends with a black triangle or something. That might be a give away.

What are the possibilities of the A343 being 9W?

Ok i got a real complicated question, I spotted a SQ B744 also, i am not sure whether its a freighter or a pax aircraft. Supposing its a pax aircraft, i have a little math question.



The photo was taken at 10:30 AM IST (Indian Standard Time).
IST is +5:30 G.M.T.
Oh and I am 8:20 mins flying time away from LON.
That means it was 5:00AM in London and about 6:00 AM in Frankfurt and Paris.

My question is, could it be the LON-SIN or the FRA-SIN or the CDG-SIN flight? It was flying West to East.

:p
Holy LORD!! let me be punished for making LHR into LON forgive me!

It's AUSTRALIA, not Austria. Australia is the land that gave us lucky men Nicole Kidman, Austria is the land that gave us The Sound of Music. Big grin
