Airbus A340-500 HGW

The A340-500 HGW (High Gross Weight) is a variant of the A340-500 that “has a range of 17,000 km (9,200 nmi) and a MTOW of 380 tons (840,000 lb) and first flew on 13 October 2006. It uses the strengthened structure and enlarged fuel capacity of the A340-600.” - Wikipedia. (For some reason Wikipedia calls it the A340-500 IGW, but I am requesting the HGW). It is essentially the same as the A340-500, but has an increased payload and longer range.

Very nice looking.
