It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more airplane art.
This week, we have a British Airways Boeing 777-300ER taking off from its home base of London Heathrow, as it heads off to its next long-haul destination
British Airways currently operate a fleet of 15 Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in its long-haul fleet, with an additional aircraft to be delivered.
The airline operates a mixture of Airbus and Boeing equipment in its fleet, including the Airbus A350-1000, Airbus A380, Boeing 777-200ER, Boeing 787-8, Boeing 787-9 and Boeing 787-10. These are supported by an all-Airbus narrow-body fleet.
The aircraft depicted this week – G-STBJ – joined the British Airways fleet in February 2014. It has remained with the airline since then, connecting people and cargo around the world. It has remained rather active during this time, visiting destinations such as Hong Kong, Lagos, Singapore and Shanghai.
More airplane art next week!
