It’s Monday and it’s my week off – so it’s time for some more airplane art.
As it’s my week off, I’m going through my archive of images that I haven’t released and picked out (that’s seemingly on my laptops storage device)
This time we have an airBerlin Airbus A330-200 being towed at Chicago O’Hare Intentional Airport.
The recent history of airBerlin before its collapse is a case study of waiting for an airport that didn’t happen, waiting for money that never came and trying to take over companies that just didn’t work out.
This frame has had an interesting life – to put it mildly. It joined LTU in February 2002. When airBerlin merged with LTU it took its ownership in 2011. In 2017, the lessor (AerCap) took back its plane after airBerlin failed and leased it to Wamos and subleased to LATAM Chile. It has since been returned to Wamos and parked this year.
More Airplane Art tomorrow!
