I believe it is an A340-300, manufactured by Airbus Industrie of Toulose, France. the bulges below the wing-root are the dead giveaway, of course; but due to foreshortening, it is difficult to know whether it is a -300 or a -600. I do not see any winglets, but, given the graininess of the photograph, they could be there.

Regards,

What's up with those bulges anyway, Dunk?

I spent almost an hour at several A340 sites, even downloading vectorized AutoCAD dawings. The problem is that there's only a couple of indistinct drawings of the A340 head-on on the ground (i.e., with its gear down). But from what I did see, it seems to me that the conformal bulges are to main landing gear (MLG) housings.

Given the height of the gear, it'd be pretty difficult to stick it in the fuselage below the wing root, so my guess is that they developed these bulges to provide a fairing and some additional storage. Inasmuch as the fairings're a lot longer than the MLG dimensions, I'd bet they have other stuff in there, such as the hydraulic actuators, etc. (but not extra fuel).

WRONG!! THE AIRCRAFT IS NOT REPEAT NOT AN A340. THE DIHEDRAL AND PLACEMENT OF THE ENGINES JUST DOESN'T MATCH. I NEED TO DO SOME MORE RESEARCH. I THINK IT MIGHT BE AN OLD ILYUSHIN.

Here's my best guess: It's an Ilyushin Il-76 'Candid" or one of its derivatives, like the IL-78 "Midas" Tanker/Firefighter, but probably not A-50 "Mainstay" AWACS aircraft, since you can't see the big "frisbee" radar.

And why the bulges? I don't know.

There is another shot of it in the image database called "interesting plane overhead".

The Ilyushin 11-20 Coot - an electronic intelligence aircraft has a ventral canoe which houses a radar anda range of signals intelligence sensors and optics - could these 'bulges' house the same?

Sure it could. But it could be almost anything. My guess, since it's two houseings instead on one, is that it's tied to a gear housing or wing supports.

c-141



The C-141B Starlifter is the workhorse of the Air Mobility Command. The Starlifter fulfills the vast spectrum of airlift requirements through its ability to airlift combat forces over long distances, deliver those forces and their equipment either by air, land or airdrop, resupply forces and transport the sick and wounded from the hostile area to advanced medical facilities. The C-141 force, nearing nine million flying hours, has a proven reliability and long-range capability. In addition to training, worldwide airlift and combat support, the C-141 has amassed a laudatory record in response to humanitarian crises. The C-141, with its changeable cargo compartment, can transition from rollers on the floor for palletized cargo to a smooth floor for wheeled vehicles to aft facing seats or sidewall canvas seats for passengers, quickly and easily, to handle over 30 different missions. (U.S. Air Force Photo by Senior Airman Greg Davis)

Lockheed C-141 it is. Would you believe that would've been my next guess? LOL
