Stunning air to air footage shows F 35s crossing Atlantic video Link https://youtu.be/argOEJnd-kM Stunning air-to-air footage shows F-35s crossing Atlantic One British F-35 was piloted by RAF ace Squadron Leader High Nichols, with two US Marines flying alongside in their own F-35s All 19 Virgin Atlantic A340-600 feature in this Plane Spotting flight documentary! The A340-600 entered service with launch customer Virgin Atlantic in July 2002. The inaugural flight took place at the 2002 Farnborough Air Show. The -600 series retains the same fuselage cross section as the -300, but is some 11.6m longer, at 75.3m making it the longest civil aircraft in the world. The aircraft is powered by four Rolls Royce Trent 500 engines each delivering 56,000lb of thrust. The aircraft is almost precisely 50% British built. The engines are built by Rolls Royce in Derby and the wings manufactured by Airbus-UK, Broughton. The final assembly takes place at Toulouse. The footage was filmed during 2012 and 2013 and represents some of the finest A340-600 footage ever filmed. I make no apologies for the length of the video, in the years to come the sight of a four engined aircraft on approach to London Heathrow will be as rare as the sight of a Boeing 747, four engined jetliner travel will be ruled by just one plane - the Airbus A380. It's hard to believe that in 2002, the future of Airbus lay with the A340-600 and the A380. 'The Power of Four' and '4 Engines 4 Long Haul' were the catchphrases that Airbus staked it's future on, but rising fuel prices and Twin engined competition from Boeing has put an end to the A340 programme. The aircraft is now out of production and as I write (Feb 2014) 5 of the 6 retired Virgin A340-600's sit idle, with no buyers to be found.
