It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more airplane art
This week, we have a Ryanair Boeing 737-800 as it is on its final descent to Birmingham Airport – taken at Stechford in Birmingham at around 9:31 in the morning.
Ryanair operate a fleet of 424 Boeing 737-800 aircraft across its different subsidiaries, split down as
- Ryanair DAC – 256 Aircraft
- Malta Air – 120 Aircraft
- Buzz – 47 Aircraft
- Ryanair UK – 1 Aircraft
The group also operates 29 Airbus A320 with Lauda Europe and a single Boeing 737-700 used for training and hire.
This aircraft – EI-DYW – joined the Ryanair fleet in November 2008 and has been in the fleet since then, making it over 12 years old. It has had minimal activity recently, with the aircraft completing a loop of the airspace of Birmingham, before returning to Birmingham Airport after a 19-minute sortie.
The aircraft has also completed some flights across the Ryanair network recently, flying to Wroclaw, Dublin and London Gatwick.
More Airplane art next week!
