It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more airplane art.
This week, we have a United Airlines Boeing 777-200ER powering up and reading for departure back to the USA (and given the time of morning this was shot – probably Chicago O’Hare International)
United Airlines operated 55 of the Boeing 777-200ER aircraft in their fleet. The airline was the launch customer for the Boeing 777-200.
In its long haul fleet, the airline also operated the Boeing 767-300ER, Boeing 767-400ER, Boeing 777-300ER, Boeing 787-8, Boeing 787-9 and Boeing 787-10. The airline also uses Boeing 757-200 aircraft on some transatlantic missions too.
These aircraft connects United Airlines hubs in North America to destinations across the world.
This aircraft – N78002 – joined Continental Airlines in September 1998. Since then, it has stayed with the airline, changing to United Airlines when the two airlines merged. At the time of writing, this aircraft is parked, pending its next duties once the market starts to return to a normal – whatever that normal may be.
More Airplane Art next week!
