Look carefully in the picture you could find that the man near the No.4 engine is spurting water into the engine and water vapor is coming out the engine during the engine is cold start running. It's called engine bath? I think it's used to clear carbon in the firebox and turbines of the engine to enhance burning ratio and thrust ! It's the first passenger B747-400 converted into a freighter of CX in the world has succeed in Xiamen Taeco. Congratulations!

Excellent photo, nicely framed, you get a real sense of the size and scale. I especially like the tricycle next to the main gear!

Looks so good a 747-400 converted to 747-400F. A very good idea and a great angle.
