Remark Photographer
ZS-SNA (cn 410) As the A340-600 is almost 7m longer than a 747-400 and does not have body gear steering - it will be fitted with a camera in the tail to allow the pilots to taxi as no part of the wing will be visible from the cockpit. The camera views will appear on the inboard ND's (the 2 inboard screens on either side of the cockpit)

The right Illumination and focus allows to detail the whole object without any glare or mud. Wonderful

The A340-600 for me is my 4th favorite jet, being followed by the B747-8, B777-200LR and the B737-900NG. I am not a real pilot, but I do fly on simulators, and I know enough about this mentioned aircraft
