You don't know or you want us to guess that it's an A310?

Oxon. no offence but I don't understand your postings sometimes. Surely if you took the pic you must have known which aircraft you were taking a picture of ?

I believe oxon posted it as a quiz photo.

The aircraft in this photo is an Airbus A300B4. Main landing gear door and position of cargo hold door helped me in identifying it :)

oxon, do you have a full version of this photo? If yes, I would like to see it.

Thank you.

Without doubt an A300-B4.

The flaps, plus the side emergency exit, the A310 does not have it.

Nice picture, would like to see the entire picture.

Mr.Abbas Ali is 100% right.... pic was suppose to be quiz... This is not a close up but camera was so near the a/c and this is original photo . Small little diggi camera was just a few feets away from the a/c. Another impossible photo of PIA from Pakistani airport , if I may say so.... because to take the camera soooooooooooooooo close to the a/c at Pakistan airport???? It was damn risky... please believe me!!! May the Allah bless the camera man !!!

Yes it wearing the new "2004" livery. You can tell by the off-white colour on the fuselage.

Personally I cant tell whether its an A310 or A300B4 ?? Still excellent detail of the landing gear.

Thanks Oxon

Well PK777 is right about one thing that this aircraft is wearing the new "2004" livery, the off-white colour on the fuselage is clearly the indication..

I also can't tell whether its an A310 or A300B4 ???

Oxon still this is a cool close up of a/c especially the landing gear....another great pic and taken sooooooooooooo close :roll:
