A rare type of shot in the database for the longest commercial jet! The A346 is a beauty!
What's the deal with the cowling? It has been on this jet since July! No time to spare for a paint job? :)

Gorgeous photo Sam!

I've always been a fan of the A340-600, and the sheer grace and size is evident from this angle. That's a whole 'lotta plane right there!

The A340-600 in Virgin colors looks like a "sportsplane" to me. Really fantatsic. Just that white engine cowling, how come is like this? Otherwise super shot.

Nice takeoff of the A340-600. Note the engine number 2 has an unmatched cowling. What kind of livery is this?
