What happen to your engine number 2? Who attacked you?

A visitor from Singapore posted Tue November 29, 2005:
Nice takeoff of the A340-600. Note the engine number 2 has an unmatched cowling. What kind of livery is this?

A visitor from Mexico posted Tue November 29, 2005:
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.

A visitor from Finland posted Mon November 28, 2005:

Rare angle of sight. Thank you for this photo.

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 28, 2005:
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!

A visitor from Indonesia posted Mon November 28, 2005:
I just dont understand why should I give Sam 5 stars?? It should be 6 stars above

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon November 28, 2005:
The Airline with the greatest winglets in the world shot in the greatest way possible!!! Amazing

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 28, 2005:
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? :)
