Virgin Atlantic Airbus A340-313E GE (old colors), registration G-VFAR. By Project Open Sky. Paint by Ben Hewitt.

The Airbus A340-313E from Virgin Atlantic has earned a huge reputation by virtue of its series of striking features that makes it a top of the class commercial passenger jet airliner. The long-range wide-body aircraft comes with the CFM56/5C4 engine that enjoys a thrust range of up to 34,000 pounds-force.

An arch rival of British Airways ever since it came into being, Virgin Atlantic can really boast of having come up with a cut above the class competitor in A340-313E. Rated among the top-ranking UK airline firms for recording a massive passenger volume, Virgin Atlantic has certainly added another feather to its cap with the launching of A340-313E.
