This picture is from the wikipedia page for Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport and I cannot figure out what kind of plane is in the picture. It looks like a BA 744 but it appears to only have two large engines. Can anybody help? Thanks.

BA 737 to my eyes.

What might that be doing there?

Do BA fly to Ahmedabad?

No they don't, which is what confuses me.

It's a sunny day in this pic and there is no shadow where the plane is. It's my guess that this was Photoshopped in. It could very well be a BA 777 if that is the case.

BA 777-200ER to my eyes.

Is there another airline with similar livery that flies 777's? The resolution of that picture is nowhere nearly good enough to positively identify it. And it could be a transient, as the terminal is clearly not yet in use.

Any chance to be an Astraeus B757?

The fuselage proportions look wrong for a 757. Length to diameter is way off. It also does not appear to have the distinctive 757 nose. But again, the resolution is not good enough to tell definitively.

Having taken another look - its too small to be a 777 or 767. Wing sweep is definitely Boeing.

If its BA it has to be a 737 I reckon. Have BA or Comair sold/leased any 737 capacity to anyone in Asia?

It's definitely photoshopped.

From the position of the aircraft I would say its original picture depicts it in flight as well.



Cheers
