Where is the Saab 340? I see a Dash 8-400 but no Saab, am I being blind?

Either I'm incredibly blind, or there is no Saab 340 taking off in the background haha! Doesn't matter though, this shot is fantastic! No matter how ugly this aircraft is, the sheer size is enough to draw your gaze.

Excellent composition - great close crop and interesting location. I've flown through SYD many times and it took me a while to orientate this photo!

The Saab can be seen between the A380's left wing gear and the fuselage, just above and to the left of the Q400 taxiing

I see it I see it!! The "Rex" Saab is taking off just above the left rear wheels. The 380 makes it hard to see anything but her in any shot!!

Superb angle that you have captured here, love this shot!

For the blind, the Saab 340 is behind the port main landing gear of the A380.

Great photo I love the Emirates livery,but must admit I am a Qantas fan.The Saab 380 is immediately behind the outter set of left landing gearon the 380 between the wheels and the aircraft belly .Very hard to see but good spotting looks like it belongs to REX Regional Airlines. .Mick H

Great photo, great airport and subject! For those that haven't spotted it, the REx Saab can be seen amongst the main landing gear of the EK A380. EDD's nose has been like that for a while, I flew aboard her back in early May and the nose had the 'Koala look' back then as well. EDE was all white, so I think it's specific to this aircraft.
