It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more airplane art.
Departing the wet and cold of Manchester Airport is an American Airlines Airbus A330-200 as it takes off for a transatlantic hop, bound for Philadelphia.
American Airlines operates both version of the Airbus A330 (current engine) – the A330-200 (the range optimised variant) and the A330-300 (the payload optimised variant), with 15 A330-200s and 9 A330-300s.
Originally brought by US Airways – these aircraft operate out primarily of American Airlines Philadelphia hub, connecting the city to Europe – although they can be found operating other services occasional (such as a Chicago to Dublin service).
This plane – N282AY joined the US Airways fleet in 2009, and has remained in it since then – and now carriers American Airlines colours.
More Airplane art next week!
