To put the closeness in perspective, I was battling to fit the aircraft in at a focal length of 18mm.

The best thing in the A340-600 series is that, on a long flight, you can do your jogging.... I can't wait for the 380's to do “stairs” as well! ;-)

That is an awesome sight! Eventhough the A340 isn't one of my favorite aircraft I would still love to be at that ceremony.

Amazing plane-to-plane shot. Love the SAA tail, so am sad to see the StarAlliance tail over it. But the wingtips are great!! Love the SAA 340-600's.

Very nice shot, good timing considering the speed it must have passed your Cessna or whatever you were in

Thats awesome! Imagine how awesome it would look with a US Airways A330-300, and two US Airways A330-200s!
