  • Etihad A340 F1 livery

    I happened to be passing my laptop this afternoon during grandpa duties with the FR24 map on and noticed what I consider the 'Holy Grail' of aircraft liveries at present, that of the ETD451 A340-612 A6-EHJ - Etihad Airways (Abu Dhabi Grand Prix livery). I hurredly whipped out the new EOS 70D with the 'bazooka' of my lenses (Sigma 150-500mm) and fired off a few shots as it flew overhead from RWY34L at SYD. Thanks to the advanced warning from FR24 I managed to get some good pics as it flew overhead my receiver (and house). I have unfortunately due to a variety of reasons, had to let it go past on previous occasions.

    Once I've mastered windows 8 on the new laptop and got the software installed and upload the pics from the cam I will post here. I've reserved this spot in anticipation. It may be a VERY long time

    'PICS' will go here. Thanks to FR24!

    For those not familiar with it, this is the aircraft in question;

    Any opinions on a nicer livery are very welcome.
