Aviation Photo #1758827 Airbus A340-313 - Swiss International Air Lines

[ Medium Large ]
106 of 222
Swiss 41 Heavy just off of Runway 24L with stunning evening light and having trouble clearing the bush before the beach! These A343s really do have a slow climb out, every time. Note the vortices coming off wingtips too ... next stop: Zurich, Switzerland.

What a beauty! The sepia effect from the rays makes it a very nice. The trails left at the winglet tips complete the effect. Hey Peter, A340 is a good climber, just posing right now for you!

Really great shot! Is the A343 somewhat underpowered, I mean, are those CFM56s' merely hairdryers?

It's not contrails off the winglets, but vortices.

At least they sound better than a hairdryer. Fantastic shot. Thanks!

Yes the vortices tend to indicate a low rate of climb at a high angle of attack as ive noticed.
