Those are what I call "TRUE" aviation fans. They get as close to the action as possible, even if it means certain death!

Beautiful shot! When you think of it, those engines are really small or maybe those pigeons are giants. :)

Remember...you're a vegetarian now...resist......!!!

Awesome shot! And from the size of the engines, I'm guessing that was an A340-300 (at Zurich, it's probably also Swiss International Airlines).

Sadly that this is a B747-400 engine, probably a GE CF6.

Like the guy from hong kong said, this engine is not from a A340-300, looks like a B744 because the engine is too big

The visitor from Hong Kong is Wrong. I can prove it is an a340 engine its because of the thrust reverse. It has 2 doors on each side with a total of 4

These birds are ridiculing our attempts at flight. Let's start the engine.
