Does anyone recognise the rudder colours of the 777 towards the right of the photo? Someone's special colour scheme perhaps?

Can't tell by the rudder colors, but I would guess by the VT- aircraft registration, that this is a future Air India aircraft.


It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

With a VT- registration? I don't think so. Note the red engine cowlings.

Looks like it might be in the process of being (re)painted into AI's new livery. You can make out the registration VT-ALC, which is not in the a.net database, however the photo below, VT-ALA, is one of Air India's brand new 777-200LR aircraft:

Edit: Just looked up www.aerotransport.org and saw that VT-ALC is indeed a 777-237/LR aircraft for Air India.

Which 777 "towards the right of the photo" has a VT- reg?

Hey CX flyboy,

that was exactly my problem. When I first saw that photo *hehe
But later I also came to the conclusion that it is an Asiana 777.

Interesting to see two Air France 773ER and two Air India 772LR's waiting to go home. 777's bound for all corners of the world.

There are really three Air India's in the picture. They have been seting there on the field for awhile now.

It had not come out of the factory by that date, although it might have done now.

For the billionth time, it is Asiana's HL7755.

lol is that JAL a 767? I count 9.2 777's in the picture. Maybe 10.2 777's. I can't tell if the first tail in the second row of aircraft belongs to a 777.

Also, is the 2nd Air India 777 (3rd row of aircraft) a 300ER version? It looks like the same length as the Air Canada 773ER!

I think a lot of people are missing the fact that the photo is wider than the screen, and that you have to scroll to the right to see the right part of the photo...this is fairly clear with the AF response, for example. Joys like this are typical on a.net, where many people seem to feel the need to correct others in order to validate their own existence.

Yeah, I thought that was cool. This site needs more humor...like G-MOO, from C.O.W. Aviation of a couple weeks ago.

Nope, the AI 773ER is unpainted if I remember right and even if it was painted it wouldn't be in that livery. They probably look to be the same size because the AC aircraft is probably a 772LR as well and not a 773ER.

When the window downloads, the first thing that you see is a white 777 with a thin red line on the rudder and a VT- regn....that's what everyone is jumping onto.....the 777 on the far right indeed is Asiana.... smile

I'm 100% certain that the AC aircraft is a 300ER because im sure it has 5 doors on each side in the picture  Smile

There is a pole blocking the middle of the fuse, how can you see all the doors...and how can you see the other side in that picture?

While I agree it looks long enough to be a -300ER it does seem to be of similar length to the AI 777 which is definitely not a -300ER.

Because the gap between the two doors either side of the pole is too large not to have a door  Smile
