This is for sure one the best moments that I have ever lived as a spotter. I've seen a low pass from an A320 and and A330-200, but see this with an A340-600 that's something else. Pilot at the controls it's HiFly's vice president Captain Carlos Mirpuri, also type rating instructor and examinor for Airbus. The A346 made a low pass at 190knots, made a hard turn to the left into the tail wind of runway 03 and performed a visual approach, landing 3 minutes later. Just amazing.

Such a beautiful plane, even in plain white.

I'd say that's taking the cost cutting measures of the 'Euro White' paint scheme a tad too far, yeah?
