    $\begingroup$ I can't see any way you could work out from the original image it's this particular A330? Also the photo and data just seems to be copied from here, you should cite your source: planespotters.net/airframe/Airbus/A330/VH-QPC-Qantas/ZQNhDG $\endgroup$ – PeterJ Sep 21 '18 at 14:53

    $\begingroup$ @PeterJ, definitely better to cite the source, but he was right... that's a Qantas' bird ;-) Look at the red under the tail on the fuselage and the reg. number under the left wing. $\endgroup$ – Marco Sanfilippo Sep 21 '18 at 16:03

    $\begingroup$ I concede that it is a Qantas jet. But Qantas owns 28 A330's. How did you determine that it was this specific aircraft? $\endgroup$ – TomMcW Sep 21 '18 at 18:31

    $\begingroup$ While waiting for al Maghraby to explain, I'm guessing that he drew his conclusion from the registration number under the left wing. Enlarging this reveals that it is VH- + three letters, first is O or Q, second P or B, third C or G. The only matches in Qantas's registrations are QPC and QPG. Don't know why it couldn't be VH-QPG. $\endgroup$ – A. I. Breveleri Sep 21 '18 at 21:19
