It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more airplane art.
This week, taxing in the morning sunshine is a British Airways Airbus A320, fitted out with Sharklet wingtip devices taxing at its home base of London Heathrow Airport.
British Airways operate a fleet of 64 Airbus A320 aircraft in their fleet (excluding other members of the A320 family), with 10 of newest members the fleet to receive the new sharklets (the programme was announced in March 2015 according to The BA Source).
A further 20 British Airways Airbus A320 aircraft will have sharklets added to them in 2018/19.
The Sharklets are visually more appealing than the wingtip fences used in older A320 family aircraft, plus I can’t get the image of Doctor Evil approving of planes with fricking sharklets.
More Airplane Art next week!
