Can Somone Identifiy This 737? (Tail Photo)

Wed Aug 08, 2007 12:06 pm

Hi Guys,

Once again another mystery at SJO with the appearance of a pink/fuscia tail in COOPESA. It seems its a 737-200 and I could not get hold of any other part of the aircraft apart from the tail. I think the letters read "IAL". I've tried searching and no info. I am trying to think who this -200 belonged and my only guess is one of the Aloha's that came in for maintenence around 2-3 weeks ago but I think I am wrong. Hopefully someone can identify this airline!

Thanks in advance!
Tomas.

The tail is not a -200. Looks more like that of a B737NG or the older B737 models. Interesting position of the horizontal stabilizer!

Edit: From reply 3, it does indeed look like LAL. Here's a link: http://www.lal.lt/en

Definitely not a -200. The -200 tail doesn't have that extra bit at the front. Compare:

Lithuanian Airlines (FlyLAL) new paint scheme...probably a 733 or 735. The IATA code is TE.

And thanks to you too, truly a genius! This is very rare stuff for us and more that its a new livery, I will be monitoring very closely this aircraft.

I have confirmed the reg, when they were moving it around they said "LY-ALQ" or "LY-AQ" something, and I am seeing here they own "LY-AQU" and its actually a good candidate since it was in the ATA colors:
