Airplane Inspiration South African A340

In order to keep everyone’s spirits up while most of us are stuck at home, I decided to start a new photography campaign. Airplane Inspiration will be a series of photographs published that showcase an airline/aircraft/airplanes from my photo bank. I encourage you to comment with your own experience with the airline or aircraft. Please share your photos on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #airplaneinspiration. I will monitor the hashtag and comment on your photos. Let’s all reminisce about the better times in aviation. We will soon be back in the air, but for now, keep up that #airlineinspiration. Today’s post: Airplane Inspiration South African A340. 


Location LHR

Location: The cover photo was taken in London Heathrow a few years back. South African Airways has since moved its LHR service to an A340-600 or their newer A350s.


Airline Snapshot 

South African Airways is the flag carrier of the Republic of South Africa. The airline has recently been under financial struggles and has since been taken over by the South African government. South African Airways flew to Europe (the UK and Germany) and to the United States (New York and Washington DC) prior to the COVID crisis. The airline is one of the largest in Africa, connecting South Africa to South America and Asia as well as North America and Europe. South African Airways is a member of Star Alliance. 


Keep up the Inspiration

If you want to share your photos of the South African Airways A340, or if you want to share your experience flying on the South African Airways A340, tag your photo on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #airlineinspiration. This way, the AvGeek world will stay connected, inspired, and with their eyes on the skies.

Landing Thoughts

I hope this new photo campaign brightens up your day. I know I have been struggling being on the ground for so long without any clear end in sight. If you want any airline highlighted, feel free to drop the airline/aircraft in the comments. If I have a picture of that aircraft/airline, I will post the photo and a link to your social media too (if you want)!
