Great photo but some strange perspective illusion going on - the engine on the right wing looks larger than that on the left wing even though it's further away.

The tail engine inlet looks odd.

# 2 is creating fog because of the low pressure in the intake at take-off power setting. The the dew point being close enough to the ambient temp. You can sometimes see it in the early stages of take-off roll just after brake release. There is just a bit of this in both #1 and #3, also. It's similar to what you see on some landings especially on the wing tips and between different sections of the flaps. Good catch!

Jim in correct about the low pressure causing the compression cloud. If you look at #2 it is completely blocked with it and when she started her take-off roll it was present.

Optical illusion? Is that a Tail Dragger?
I'm actually more curious about the KC-135 in the background because THIS IS ABOUT THE 100,000 PIC OF AN INCREDIBLY BORING FED EX PLANE!

God Flightaware get a clue.
Greg Venable
Great pic, kinda partial to FedEx since it's my employer!
Luis Jacobo
love this plane, so the Fedex way

Someone decided to have some fun haha
Great shot Scott. The high angle of attack is almost blocking airflow to #2 causing some low pressure at the compressor. On 3 holers this can lead to compressor stalls (loud thumps). Used to crew B727's and any rapid throttle advancement while doing a rolling start out of the taxiway would invariably mean the the no 2 engine was starved of air momentarily...boom boom...and off we'd go!
