I would guess that an A340-600 is not far away as well . Interesting that they went for the least popular A340 model but great anyways.

Liveries to expect:

Singapore
Emirates
Etihad old colours?
Air Canada old colours?
Arik Air
Azerbaijan
Qatar Amiri
TAM
Kingfisher...

I'd much prefer to see the -600.... but the -500 would be a nice model altho apart from Air Canada, no other -500 operator fits within my collection criteria so my money will be spent elsewhere for now

This is cool - might be wrong but I think the SQ A340-500 was the one that used to fly the longest non-stop flight of 18 hours from Singapore to New York.

Thanks for posting!

We should start a survey what liveries we want, how many we need, then let Mr. Marcus from JC see and decide what liveries should come next after SQ.....market survey results can possibly help to push for liveries you need.....we have a survey guy in this forum, maybe he can start something like a survey?????

And where is THAI AIRWAYS in your list? It should be on top, also Etihad's F1 must be a hit.

You are perfectly right . The A340-500 has been built to cover this distance.
Once it has been built, it did the job.

This is terrible news! Now I have to sell even more models or get a bigger place to accommodate all these new amazing releases! Seriously though, these are going to be hot sellers and I'll definitely take the SQ, Air Canada and Etihad versions.

I am also a bit puzzled it's the -500 and not the -600. But still, nice news!

We went on the Toronto Pearson Airside Tour today and while on it, only got out of the bus twice. Once to see the Fire Department and second to see this Beauty that came in to Pearson and is scheduled to leave at 1:10 am Sunday Morning

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Airbus A340-500 and 600 and this stunner is a 500 and she is only 6 years old.


And, now I can hardly wait to add an Airbus A340-500 to my collection, YES My collection and not Aryelles

The tour was fine. Also saw part of the Avro Arrow mock up, that is SOMETHING that needs to be displayed proudly and not stored in a Hangar

Yes this is a good one for sure, but I'd like to see an update following Etihad NC. This livery exists since 6 years ago at least. So, maybe we will see a new version to come for next year, will not ?

I haven't seen any A340-500s locally - have only seen the Etihad old livery, Etihad Grand Prix and LAN Airlines A340-600s. IMHO the larger engine nacelles look better on the -500 and -600s than the smaller ones on the -400.

I really would like diecasts of the two Eithad -600s too if any manufacturers are here counting votes. :-)

You sure chose a good day to do that YYZ airside tour! I was super excited when I saw this from behind the fence and only dreamed of airside !

As for this A345 release Marcus, can't wait! Bring on the other schemes too
