A340 @eham


The usual happened: yesterday I saw there was a special departing from Schiphol tomorrow, so I launched preparations to go spot it. This time it was an Airbus A340-300, quite a rare plane at Schiphol nowadays.

The reason why the A343 is called a hairdryer is because the pylon attached to the engine makes the whole structure look like a hairdryer. It’s a well known nickname for the A340-300

How could you🤭

I’m not entirely sure where it came from either, all I know is that people call the A340-300 that.
Edit: see @TheGlobalAviator’s post

I agree! Thanks for viewing!

What a beauty! 😍
