Picture Of Cathay A340-600 Please

Tue Nov 12, 2002 2:43 pm

Cathay Pacific is due to receive its first A340-600 at the end of the month.

Has anyone seen it at Toulouse yet, and if so when can we have a photo?

Should look pretty awesome, I reckon

Thanks,

Bells

My friend saw it when only the tail was painted, that was two or three weeks ago.

4-5 days, I guess.

The photo above may not be real, but it's good enough.

Lewis: it was originally in Civil Aviation before someone performed whatever technological wizardry required to shift it here.
