Help With Aircraft And Airline ID

Tue Feb 10, 2004 10:10 pm

I know how everyone always seems to like to show off their ID skills, so here is one for you. I took this Sunday Feb 8 over BDL. I can't figure out who it is, looks like it could be an A332. Well have at it....

BA 777 OR 767?

Looks like a world tail image.

Could be wrong though....

I would agree with Simon here. An A330 has 4 of those things (what are they called in English?) underneath the wings, while a 777/767 has only 3 (as in your pic). Plus, BA don't have any A330s.

I've found a similar pic of a (UA) 777 in the db.

The plane you photographed could be this one.

Hi all,

I am pretty certain it's a Speedbird 772 Column colours - G-VIIP if memory serves

Corey,

No doubt in my mind  Smile

Those engines on your image are 772 engines not 763 engines.

Definately a 777. The wing span should be a clear indication...

Cheers,

Yeah... The engines look quite big. But I couldn't find a 'colum' 777 in the database (I forgot that name) so I figured it was a 767 then (since basically all aircraft in the world are in this database). Big grin

Well Ben I have to agree, I went through some of the other pics I took and you can see the contrail from the apu coming out from the side and not the back. Must be G-VIIP.

It's impossible for it to be a A330, I think it's a BA 767.

WOW....I took a photo of the exact same plane on the same day over Baltimore,Md. At around 4:30 or so. Here's my shot




I asked the exact same question at a certain other site and everyone said it was G-VIIP.

I'm not sure where she's going,I'm not even sure it is G-VIIP.I uploaded my shot to the "other" site and it was rejected for bad info.
