2013 had been a pretty slow year of spotting, until this showed-up! The NauSena crew has just lit-up its Kuznetsov NK-12MV turboprop engine # 4 as engine #1 spins furiously. In the background, is another First-Time visitor to BOM, Cathay Pacific Cargo 747-800F B-LJH. In terms of range, Fully Fuelled the old-school Tupolev will still leave the New-Generation Freight Queen far in the distance.

Fantastic shot Vishal! Great idea to frame the Cargo Queen in the background as well. -Angad S

If I'm not mistaken, that's the glittery new T2 where the CX 747 is parked. So why is a cargo aircraft parked there?

Great capture! What are the chances of seeing these two planes in the same shot again?

What a remarkable photograph - especially for its subject matter. Even if both aircraft were "Plain Janes," it would still be a beautiful image, with the nigh lights and the mist (or humidity).
