It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more Airplane Art.
This week, we have a Qatar Airways Airbus A380 accelerating down the runway at Heathrow Airport as it takes off for the trip back to Hamad International Airport in Doha.
Qatar Airways operates a fleet of eight Airbus A380 aircraft, with two more stored.
They support the long haul fleet that consists of the Airbus A330-200, Airbus A330-300, Airbus A350-900, Airbus A350-1000, Boeing 777-200LR, Boeing 777-300ER, Boeing 787-8 and Boeing 787-9.
This Aircraft – A7-API – joined the Qatar Airways fleet in December 2017, with it remaining in its fleet since then. It was stored between November 2020 to December 2021, when it was reactivated. It has been operating out of its Doha hub, recently operating flights to Sydney, London Heathrow, Paris and Bangkok.
More Airplane Art next week!
