It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more airplane art.
This week, I’ve dug into the archive to work on some more images that need to be released – so I present a British Airways Airbus A380-800 powering down the runway at London Heathrow Airport as it heads off into the sky to a long haul destination.
British Airways operate 12 Airbus A380-800 in its long haul fleet. They support the British Airways long haul operation out of Heathrow.
As well as operating the A380, British Airways also operates the Airbus A350-1000, Boeing 747-400, Boeing 777-200, Boeing 777-200ER, Boeing 777-300ER, Boeing 787-8 and Boeing 787-9.
The airline is also due to take delivery of the Boeing 787-10 into its long haul fleet, and is a customer of the Boeing 777X-9.
This frame – G-XLEL – was delivered in June 2016 and remains in service with British Airways, with four classes of travel (First, Club World, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller) avalible for passengers onboard.
More airplane art next week!

This was actually a pretty tough image to edit – due to the glass, a lack of image saturation and the grey in the sky. A lot of tweaking with the image’s presence and tone helped to pull out the colours from a grey Heathrow day…
