The most beautiful aircraft for a great picture ! Conducting VMU trials - the tail strike is done intentionally for testing purposes to determine the minimum speed at which the aircraft will lift off the ground.

That is a rather cool picture it must be quite intense when you are in the cockpit doing the trials as you rotate and don't lift off straight away. Nice one guys

You have to be careful with those super long a340-600s.
