it was tough to get good angles because of the weather, the A330s and 747s were getting tossed by the wind

These too? Why not the A340

and just a side note, is it just me or does the A35K have no gear tilt

I’m pretty sure it doesn’t

I’ve seen on some takeoff videos from spotters, the 35K has a levered gear on rotation but no significant tilt afterwards.
