I'm not a fan of these taxiway shots, but I couldn't resist today! ;) "Mike Alfa" is towed to the terminal area prior her flight to Tokio Narita as LH0710. BTW: I was wondering why they use the two-axle tug instead of the three-axle tug which was exclusively developed to match the A380 requirements?!

Maybe just because it was empty on its tranfer to the gate. no pax, to freight.
the special 3-axle tug is only necessary with load on board, for pushback with tons of load & fuel.
anyhow, awesome plane, nice light and brilliant shot. 5*
