Funny....I thought the Airbus' flight computer wouldn't let it bank that hard...

Wow.. what a picture. It has a hidden message for us living in the future. The 340 bids farewell while the 330 and 321 move on. Similar to the current situation where the 340 program is no more but newer variants of the 320 and 330 programs being developed. 5 stars and long live the elegant 340!

1990s nostalgia. I wonder if Airbus knew they were really heading for big-time success with this new line of FBW planes.

Interesting interpretation by the 2nd US visitor. Also while there will be the A330Neo indeed, note the A330 here is also already banking, then maybe to say the A350 is coming.
As to the first comment, I think Airbus pilots/engineers don't have to go to too much trouble to remove Alpha protection(/ any other computer systems) for demonstration flights like we see here.
Great photo, thanks for posting, there's a bright future for the A320/A321Neo, shame about the A340, I love especially the A345 and A346.

To the first poster - Airbus flight envelope protections will allow the aircraft to bank to 68 degrees, and all of the bank angles in this picture are well within that.
