It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more Airplane Art.
This week, we’ve gone into the archives for this American Airlines Boeing 737-800 on final approach to one of its bases – Chicago O’Hare International Airport.
American Airlines is a major operator of the Boeing 737 family, with the airline operating a total of 303 of the 737-800 in its fleet. The airline operates the Airbus A319, Airbus A320, Airbus A321neo and Boeing 737 MAX 8 in its short to medium-haul fleet.
The Boeing 737 is the workhorse of the American Airlines fleet, filling in for routes across the network.
This aircraft – N829NN – was delivered to American Airlines in March 2010 and has remained in the fleet since then. It has been operating all over for the airline in the past week basing itself out of Dallas Fort Worth and Miami, with it travelling to Belize City, Guatemala City, Washington Dulles, Colorado Springs, Seattle, San Jose del Cabo, Tulsa, Minneapolis St Paul, Cleveland, Nassau, Montego Bay, Panama City, Detroit, St. Croix and more.

I’m going to admit something I don’t normally do – I had everything lined up for my usual kit of a Canon 100-400L with an EOS 6D for this sort of photo. It shows that the little version of the Canon 70D is still a powerhouse and can surprise me all these years later.
Believe it or not – I still have the 100D – it’s come in more uses than not for a couple of emergencies or when I need a smaller camera than the EOS R or 6D. It had a major trip out in 2018 when I travelled to Portugal for Eurovision when I didn’t want to leave the 6D in a hostel. It is up for retirement soon, however. With what is another matter…
