It’s Wednesday and it’s still my week off – so it’s time for some more airplane art. (Even though I’ve spent 1 minute more in the comments section than I would have liked)
This time we have a United Airlines Boeing 777-200ER taxiing around its base of San Francisco International Airport in classic Battleship Grey.
United Airlines was the launch operator of the Boeing 777 family, with the airline taking on the Boeing 777-200 and 777-200ER during the pre-merger time. In later years (and once merged with Continental, the airline took the larger Boeing 777-300ER, as well as spreading its wings to the Boeing 787 family.
N794UA is still in active service – and thankfully had a repaint since this photo was shot. It today wears a Star Alliance Livery on it.
The aircraft joined the United fleet in 1997. It is parked currently due to… obvious reasons.
More airplane art tomorrow!
