New Arrival

Arrived just a bit ago, and she's a beauty. Looks much better than I thought it would in the new livery. Love those RR Trents in white too!

The stand that comes with is brown metal, but I prefer the old wooden ones.

That’s a lot of EuroWhite. Still looks good though. Congrats.

I Have to be honest was not really impressed with this livery at first, but it is growing on me, and it is one off those liveries, witch will suit most aircraft, as with the last two liveries they had, love Lufthansa nice arrival.

Thanks guys. It's especially nice to see on the A346. Hopefully they'll be around for awhile. Four-holers are getting scarce.

Looks good Snowghost. Do you think Gemini will release a Lufthansa 747-8i in the new livery?

The beautiful swan of the skies. IMO, Airbus's crowning achievement. Sorry, A380 diehards but a morbidly obese A320 is not my cup of tea.

My first, and only experience with the A340 was many years ago. I was driving south on I-294 east of ORD (in a traffic jam of course). And lo and behold, there was a gorgeous and completely unexpected British Airways A340 (probably -300) starting her taxi. I was god-smacked by her grace and size! As we crawled southward, she moved out of sight. But then suddenly she roared into the heavens right over us! That beautiful swan had made a turn after liftoff as to say, "look at my brilliance." And there I was with my mouth wide open in awe.

Dunno. Maybe Russell can opine. But I’ll buy it.

Lovely addition there snowghost :cool: Still one of the Airbus aircraft I actually accept having around, it's like the Douglas DC8-83 of today in a sense :)

BA never flew the A340. I wonder what livery it was that made you think BA.

Pretty darn sure it was BA because of the tail colors. If it wasn't BA, then possibly Air France, but AF is too euro white....
