The engines look like CFM-56's, so it would have to be an A340-300 or A340-200.

I'd say LH B747-200 and a river near Frankfurt.

Having gone to google earth the town on the right side of the river is Nackenheim and if you change the viewing angle you can get a pretty good approximation to the linked picture.

Over What River?

The Rhine, approaching FRA from the west.

I was more sure of the plane than the location...

It's a 747: check the engines

I was with the A340 crowd, but I think this chap Khobar might on to something.. Big grin Looks like a 747 engine.
There is something special about planes....
