Ex F-WWJN. "Signalkuppe" is slowly crossing the Andes some 10min after departing SCL. Whether covered in snow or not, the Andes are always a breathtaking sight.

Being an A340-300 saying "is slowly crossing..." is almost a redundancy :) Nice shot nevertheless.. Gruss Winnetou..

When I saw the mountains and the Swiss logo in the winglet, I thought this was in Switzerland. Great view. T.B.

Fantastic picture! I sure would be glad to see 4 motors out there flying over terrain like this! By "slowly crossing" the photographer means that the plane is heavily loaded with fuel and so relatively speaking is undertaking a slow & steady climb up to cruise altitude.

This is one of the many reasons I love aviation so much. Just look at the picture, it say's enough.
