Very well done shot!

Great to finally see the A-345 in another airline's c/s. Just adding to the engine question - note the outboard engines are hung so that thrust is angled aft and very slightly down. This, I have been told, adds a small component of lift to the outer wing compensating for the lift taken away by putting the engine there in the first place. A-380 has this as well

Nice pic, definetly one of the most graceful planes flying today. About the engine alignment question: looks like the outer engines have shorter pylons than the inner ones so they hang higher. This was probably done to reduce the chance of the outer engine pods scraping the ground in the event a gust of wind causes a sudden wing-dip as the plane is about to land etc. Hanging them a little higher gives the pilots a little more breathing space I guess!

Nice looking aeroplane. The white comes off as a cream colour, which matches well with the golde lettering. Very classy.
