Caption
N343NW sporting the new A320 vertical stab engine mod. ;-) Thanks for the compliments. Many have spied the FedEx MD-11 behind the Delta A320 in this shot. While working N599FE (I have a cockpit shot of that jet on A.Net as well) I saw this shot materialize as I decended the crew stairs of 599. As the two jets became one the little light bulb illuminated above my head and I captured the shot.

I did not know that Airbus offered an optional extra boost engine on the A320, like on the old Trident.

Beautiful capture, not just a matter of being in the right place at the right time. The illusion fits perfectly and seeing it at first had me genuinely confused. Congrats on the pic.

Most impressive! I stared at this for a good fifteen seconds, before I realized the presence of the MD-11.

I actually thought the airbus a320 had a third engine in its tail but it turns out it was sitting next to a md-11. Puzzled me for a bit but excellent photo!!!!

Almost looks like Airbus is planning a new Trijet to replace older planes like the MD-11, DC-10, and 727 but it looks much more better like that!
