It's more likely to be the first 777-300ER for Air India.

Nope, that should be AI's first 77W. Their 77Ls have red nacelles and a red rudder, as well.

They are not due to start flying until November '08 so it might be a little early.They haven't yet got the permission to fly to the US either. The name for this part of the Virgin Blue group is going to be released shortly. The short list is: Matilda Blue, Australia Blue and Australia Airlines and V. Australia Airlines.

Not to mention that DJ aircraft (including Pacific Blue) actually have white rudders with a blue stripe on the rudder edge.  Wink

Wasn't it Australian Airlines? Regardless, I agree they are unlikely to go with something so close to a name that only recently left the market.

because the agreement that the Virgin group have with SQ is that the Virgin name may not be used for international flights based out of Australia - it is a shame because I think it would be a great name

When I first saw that I was thinking, uh, thats a 744. But I agree, seems a little too early for their first T7. They just announced it what maybe 3 months ago? (I think it takes that long to just make a T7)

Just my thoughts.

You just have to love these types of pictures!!!! So much to look at. The 747LCF and the 777's etc etc. Can't wait to see Air India's new livery on the 77W. Will look fantastic! I always enjoy seeing new liveries on the 777's.

Couldn't that 777-300ER be one of the leased birds for TAM Brasil? Weren't they due to receive some from a major lessor relatively soon and then start receiving their own sometime in the future?

From the green tinge in the rudder I'd say it'd be Air Canada. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

That would be AC's. Flickr is blocked here at work so I cannot check, but I think it is a 77W, actually. I believe both of their 77Ls are in full colors.

Its not a 77W as its too short. definately a 772/L.
Out of interest still, how many 772s are there still to come out of the plant?? mostly now 77Ws and 77Ls now a days!!

That is probably just the green protective coat for the aluminum. Is the bottom half yellow?

TAM's red looks to have an orange tint to it, where AI's is a deeper red. I have been within 300 ft of that plane and the rudder and nacelles are the deep red of AI's color scheme, not the orange-red of TAM's, so I remain confident that the plane is AI's.  Smile

So I rolled over to the Future of Flight Museum to check the flight-line - just in time to watch F-GSQY land from her test flight right in front of me ( Big grin ) - and there is indeed an AC 77L in front of the 777 paint shop and the AC 77W is out on the flight line.

I loved this article, from the Sydney Morning Herald recently - Sums up exactly how I feel about VB! He He He!  Silly

No more Virgins


Virgin Blue is having a few problems naming its new international airline.


Last month it registered its proposed airline with ASIC under the name "VB
International Airlines".


There are whispers Boony may have been planned as the inflight ambassador.


Maybe Foster's complained, or maybe Boony was unavailable. But this week
Virgin Blue changed the name to Virgin Blue International Airlines. That
won't stick for long either.


It can't use "Virgin" because the Singapore Airlines joint venture Virgin
Atlantic has dibs on "Virgin". (Virgin Blue uses Pacific Blue for its South
Pacific airline, sharing its name with a cheesy soap opera about bicycle
cops in Santa Monica.)


Yesterday Virgin Blue announced a whizzbang competition to name its new
airline.


Our whip around the airline industry yesterday came up with the following
suggestions.


Unsullied Blue, Undeflowered Blue, True Blue, Beyond Blue, Abstinence
Airlines (for long-haul "routes"), True Love Waits Airlines, Skanky
Airlines, Singapore Airlines and our favourite, Ansett.
Ansett Australia - (was) One of the worlds great airlines!

Actually, that plane (between the AF and EK 77Ws) is a different one. The one we are discussing is the plane directly behind the taxiing EK 77W. I saw her being built in the factory and she had the red rudder and red nacelles at that time, so she has not yet been to the paint-shop.

I am guessing that other plane may also be an AI 77W, since the tail is identical to the unpainted AI 77L.

Wow, these are great pictures, and so many widebodies in it.

Can anybody please tell me what we are seeing?

July 2nd (left to right):

Cessna something, Citaton or so.
Dreamlifter N780BA
772LR Air India
773ER with blue tail, 9W?
Incredibly clean AF 773ER, seen from behind.
773ER with red on the tail and yellow-green engines. Air India?
773ER with grey on the tail and grey engines. Qatar Airways?
Fully painted EK 773ER.
Behind a 772, can't really say whether LR or not. Engines and tail colours not visible due to EK 773ER.
Behind another 773ER with red tail, AI again?
One strange grey plane.
Never mind those elevated in the back.
Another 772 with red tail, probably a 772LR for Air India.
744F for ?
A B-52 for Venezuela
Fully painted 772LR for Air India. Above it two red tails.

I hope I have at least one right.

July 3rd picture:

Cessna N62332
744F N50217
A low grey tail. Is that actually a 777? Those three bulges are missing, looks more like a 767.
772 with grey nose and grey tail. Looks like AA to me.
Fully painted El Al 772.
Three fully painted planes, two 772LR for AI with a 773ER for AF between them.
One twisted plane, oh, a dreamlifter.
773ER with red tail and engines, AI?
One green front section. Behind it a 777NG, according to the wings.
One 777 seen from the front. Size of the engines and wings look like a 772ER.
One 777 seen from behind, dark blue tail, NG wings and I think five doors. 773ER for 9W?

OK, comments welcome.

# 773ER with grey on the tail and grey engines. Qatar Airways? - - AC

Right, I didn't recognize the colour.

Quoting Stitch (Reply 43):
# Behind a 772, can't really say whether LR or not. Engines and tail colours not visible due to EK 773ER. - Might be AC's 77L

Could be. The more I look at it the more I think the wings are raked.

One strange grey plane. - KC-767 Prototype for USAF



Quoting Stitch (Reply 43):
A low grey tail. Is that actually a 777? Those three bulges are missing, looks more like a 767. - KC-767 Prototype for USAF

Thanks for clarifying.

Quoting Stitch (Reply 43):
One 777 seen from the front. Size of the engines and wings look like a 772ER. - Might be AC's 77W

Might be. I could be wrong concerning the engines and wing ends. This one is a hard one.

I drive by PAE twice a day (once in the morning and once in the evening) so I try and scan the tarmac and paint shop area plus the assembly bays (when they open the doors for cooling).

It would be cool to have someone like Matt or Clickhappy who could keep us updated on what's going on at TLS and XFW. We need someone down at RNT, too.  Smile

 Sad You already have someone in a virtual form Chris...

Btw, one of these days you're gonna end up stoving your car into the back of the one that's suddenly stopped in front of you on the motorway with all the ramp rubber-necking you do !  biggrin
