Love the 340s although they're bad climbers...

You know, they would get in the air faster if they flapped their wings, which it looks like he's trying.

Is it just me or is it taking off a little bit to one side? Take a close looks at the wheels. But still great shot

A take-off and landing are the two great moments in seing a plane in flight. That's the reason for the five stars. Good work !

Great shot indeed. 340s are very attractive birds. The background shows this bird in its natural habitat :)

The A340's though are attractive but technically speaking have a very low rate of climb esp the 300 series-Anyways.....This picture just rejuvenates mu senses...- Jayesh

5 stars for capturing such a suffocating shot! I also agree with what Jayesh says about the 340s' climb rate.The only 340 I get to see in my city is from the Gulf Air and it always leaves me breathless by talking a long run till the end of the runway yet a very low pitch rotation.I think Airbus should upgrade 340s' engine.

A340's are so photogenic! Even though it has a bad climb rate it still is a great plane!

These engines really look a little bit too smal for this heavy...

Looks like the engines are having a hard time hauling this big plane off the runway.
