When you have something, You take it for granted but once you loose it is when you start to miss it. These magnificient modern flying pencils are now being phased out and have already stopped operating here. I’m so glad to have got a night shot of one of them before they become history. I’ll certainly miss these over the Boeing 777 that has replaced them. ETIHAD 203 pushed back and doing it’s final checks before the hop back to Abu Dhabi.

Thanks Sanat for sharing this with us. Nice catch, and great capture in little light. I too am going to miss these beauties. Hope to catch a ride on the A346 before they are gone for good.

I won't harp on and on about how great the shot is as I got the same 8-)
But since that is an indirect reflection on my own shot I must say, that is a Stunning photo of the most beautiful commercial airplane in the world.
However, your Nikon's distinct aperture blade flares adds to the photo's appeal and so i'll concede in admitting its the better photo :-)

Indeed! The A340 is an absolutely stunning bird, that nose section is a work of art.
