It’s Sunday so it’s time for some more airplane art.
This week we have a United Airlines Boeing 777-200ER taxiing in the sunset at Chicago O’Hare International Airport as it prepares to head off to its next long haul destination.
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.
This aircraft – N78013 joined the Continental Airlines fleet in September 1999. It remained with Continental until United and Continental merged, with it switching certificate to fly under United in May 2011.
It has since remained in the United Airlines fleet, with the aircraft now 21 years old and operationally active.
More airplane art next week!
