Aircraft Identity Needed (Contrail Pics)

Sat Nov 18, 2006 3:59 am

Hi guys:

I am happy as ever because contrail season has started again over Chandigarh, i have a few more for you guys to identify. Here we go:

This looks like LH MD11, but what confuses me is the emirates looking sign on the bottom of the plane, can anyone confirm this and does anyone know which EXACT aircraft this is and maybe have pics of it on the ground?

No clue which airline this is... but a 747 for sure


Red engines... A340.... no clue on the airline


This maybe a LH A343, again can anyone identify the exact aircraft ? Note the HALF blue engine. That may make it easier to pin point the aircraft.


thanks guys,
regards

Except Emirates has the entire section under the wing stub and central fuel tanks bright red except for the "Emirates" written on it. Its impossible to miss...

I'm with you on that one. You can see the blue tail, blue striping around the grey belly and the half blue engines.

Edit: Oops....sorry, I just noticed that you mentioned Chandigarh right at the top.....
