It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more Airplane Art.
This week, we have a Singapore Airlines Airbus A380 in its Singapore 50 livery taxiing at London Heathrow as it heads off to its home base.
Singapore Airlines have a total of five Airbus A380 aircraft active, with another four parked. They are part of the airlines long-haul fleet, made up of Airbus A330-300, Airbus A350-900, Airbus A350-900ULR, Boeing 777-300, Boeing 777-300ER and Boeing 787-10 in their long haul fleet.
The airline is also introducing the Boeing 737-8 in its short to medium-haul operations, as well as utilising the 737-800 that was operated by Silk Air.
This aircraft – 9V-SKJ – was delivered to the airline in September 2009. It was parked in July 2020 and is pending future use.
More Airplane Art next week!
