It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more Airplane Art.
This week, we have an Air France Airbus A321-200 landing at London Heathrow Airport with its thrust reversers deployed as it decelerates.
Air France operates a fleet of 14 Airbus A321-200 aircraft in its short to medium-haul fleet. The airline also operates the Airbus A220-100, Airbus A318, Airbus A319, Airbus A320 and Airbus A321-100 in their short-haul operation.
These aircraft feed into the Air France hubs at Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports, connecting Europe to the world.
This aircraft – F-GTAS – is named Castres. It joined the Air France fleet in March 2008. It was assigned briefly to everyone’s favourite Roof-top bar – Joon in Mach 2018. With Joon folding, it was merged back into the main Air France fleet in July 2019.
The aircraft has been busy operating out of its Paris Charles de Gaulle base to destinations including Copenhagen, Lisbon, Rome FCO, Casablanca, London Heathrow, Birmingham, Tunis, Athens, Warsaw and Barcelona.
More Airplane Art next week!
