Help Identifying Plane

Wed Feb 17, 2016 9:19 pm

My little brother took a blurry picture today at IAD. It's clearly a widebody, but the number of engines is hidden. The tail appears to be solid black or navy blue.
The fuselage is white and there are hints of pink on the wingtip. I'm working on getting a copy of the photo.

Can anyone identify the plane just by the description?

Belgian Air Force A330
Air China A330 (star alliance livery)

Is it possible that one of the Breast Cancer Awareness planes (not sure of all of them), similar to Delta's was there?

I forgot to mention the tail was blank and there were no titles....
The Belgium Air Force A330 best matches the description so far...

Belgian Air Force doesn't operate the A330 anymore.

Plane in the photo is not an Airbus. It's a 767 or 777.

Really hard to tell but I'm leaning towards 767. Beyond that there's just no telling, not much to go on with a white fuselage and a dark tail.
Now you're flying smart

We've seen a few unmarked 767s in the IAD area before. Maybe this one is wearing a blue tail now or she's got a sistership:



Sure there's been another thread on it if it hasn't been deleted.

Air China doesn't fly A330s to IAD. Out of range.
