It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more Airplane Art.
This week, we have a United Airlines Boeing 757-200 on final approach to Dublin Airport, as it completed a hop across the Atlantic.
United Airlines have a fleet of 40 Boeing 757-200 aircraft in its fleet, for use both in US Domestic and International operations, where long and thin is a requirement. United Airlines also operates the Boeing 777-200ER, Boeing 777-300ER, Boeing 787-8, Boeing 787-9 and Boeing 787-10 in its long-haul operations.
The Boeing 757-200 sadly hasn’t got much life left in it as the airline is due to withdraw the type in 2024, as United seeks to replace the type with it is replaced by the Airbus A321neo, Airbus A321XLR and Boeing 737 MAX 9.
This aircraft- N21108 – joined Continental Airlines in November 1994. When the airline merged with United in November 2010, the aircraft followed along. Sadly, this aircraft has been parked since April 2020.
More airline art next week!
