Aircraft Named After Your Country/ City

Thu Feb 06, 2003 8:39 pm

I live in Poznan- town in western Poland. LOT gives names only to it`s 767 planes and the youngest (manufactured in 1997) SP-LPC is named "Poznan".
I used to fly onboard "Poznan" once (HER-WAW).

Ok, thanks for your reply, but how does it concern you? I asked about planes named after your country or city/town?

Oh yes.....Three (!!) Boeing 747-400 actually, all Lufthansa:

Born in Baden Württemberg:
D-ABVC Boeing 747-430 "Baden-Württemberg"

Living in Berlin:
D-ABVA Boeing 747-430 "Berlin"

Working in Frankfurt/Main:
D-ABVF Boeing 747-430 "Frankfurt am Main"

All three are old-timers with LH, they were bought in 1989/1989/1990, 368 seats each!

Hi,
my home town is Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany (60.000 Inhabitants),
and Lufthansa has a 737-300 named after my city.
Moreover, there is a helicopter of the US-Army named after my city, too.
O.K., bye,

Yes, there are LH planes named after the cities

- where I was born

- where I live

- where I work

(two 340-300, one 320 respectively)

And of course each of the three Lands in which these cities are located has a 747-400 - except maybe Nordrhein-Westfalen, the last one was a 747-200 which is now scrapped, but the there will be another one sooner or later - if there isn´t one yet.

Swissair earlier named all Aircrafts with names of Cantons and Cities in Switzerland. 747-200 HB-IGA and B have been Zurich and Geneva, HB-IGC to G have been named Zurich, Geneva, Basel, Bern and Ticino and so on.
Swiss International is going to name all aircrafts as per Swiss Mountains.

A little known aviator named Charles A. Lindbergh apparently flew a small plane nonstop from New York to Paris back in the late 1920's. Rumor has it the plane was called the "Spirit of St. Louis". Unfortuantely, I have no way to verify this.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

N498US has had interesting ties to Fresno (FAT). After leaving service with Piedmont and US it was leased by Fresno-based startup Air 21 for a year in 1996. After Air 21 closed, N498US was picked up by Horizon Air. It returned to Fresno a couple of years later to operate the inaugural FAT-SEA flights. When it arrived at FAT the first day it had been named "The Great City of Fresno". That was a nice touch by QX.

I live in the state of Pennsylvania, and as the USAF decided to name its B-2A Spirit stealth bomber fleet after the various states, they named one "Spirit of Pennsylvania", and flew it into NAS/JRB Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, nearby for the christening ceremony...this was about 3-4 years ago...

Regarding Toronto/YYZ,
NW has a 752 called "The City of Toronto".

Decades ago, Martinair had a DC-8 & American a Lockheed Electra named "Toronto".

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Northwest used to have several 757s named after different cities but I don't think they are named anymore, at least they haven't had a visible name on them with the bowling shoe color scheme like they used to with the metal scheme.

Back on the 80's Aeromexico used to have all its airplanes named after a city or after a national hero. I think that was cool and I really think they should go back to that practice. Anyway from those days here is the "Ciudad de Mexico" named after my hometown Mexico City.

Hi there:

I live and work in Wellington, New Zealand. The Maori name for New Zealand is Aoteraroa, meaning "The Land of The Long White Cloud"

Air New Zealand's first Boeing 767-219ER ZK-NBA was named AOTEAROA. I'm not sure if the aircraft's current scheme still shows the name, maybe someone could clarify it. But, here is a photo I found on A-Net which shows the old colours with the name clearly visible...
