LH - Prepping an A320 for scrapping a little differently

Fri Oct 26, 2018 5:04 pm

As the info on the twitter post suggests, normally the scrapping of an old A320 is not really exciting news...but LH Technik got a bunch of graffiti artists to dress this one up in Sofia before being scrapped. Frankly i found this rather a cool idea and couldn't see it posted elsewhere, so here you go and enjoy.. Any LH fans with the registration of this bird would be appreciated as it doesn't show up on the video.

That feeling when you sit at the end of a runway, brakes are released and the raw power takes over. Now that is a thing of beauty and it never gets old.

Well that's really awesome and fair play to the guy that did it, good job done it's a shame we don't see more of this, perhaps it might catch on :-)

i agree, this was done as part of some event, but it would be good if it could be done at regular intervals to give local artists a chance to shine, graffiti or otherwise, what a canvas to express your talent. impressive what you can do with a 320, imagine something larger like an old 757, 767 or bigger, that would be quite the sight. You could almost create an art park, charge a fee for folks to look at the aircraft to cover the cost of the paint etc. and have a rolling exhibit, once those are set for the final scrap, do another one.. There are plenty in the bone-yards to choose from. If I lived closer to one, I am sure i would be interested in checking it out.

Wow, what an amazing colorscheme! They should get this guy to do an in-service airliner.

Seems to recall sometime ago when skyliner-aviation reported this, but never seem the video itself - what a fantastic livery if it can be applied to some flying birds!

Saw this bird back in August when I was leaving SOF. It was pretty cool to see in real life.

Anything for a buck ;-)

Looks like LH figured out how to make some extra money from this. Good for them.

It is a little Gothic isn't it? I wonder what they mean by that. If somebody is good at psychology I urge him to please give us some explanation...

Well, you were quicker by mere seconds. Perhaps they should consider applying this scheme fleet-wide. Could somebody do some photoshopping to apply LH titles and logo, please?
