This was one of Airtours' first pair of 757s, acquired in October 1993 through the takeover of Inter European Airways.

The Boeing Collection

From a collection of some 500 Boeing slides that I've had scanned from my archives. Hope they will provide some enjoyment and nostalgia from a bygone age.

 

Icelandair Boeing 727-185C TF-FLG is seen here approaching runway 28L for departure at London Heathrow with scheduled flight FI461 to Reykjavik.

 

TF-FLG c/n 19826 - Boeing 727-185C was originally delivered new to American Flyers as N12826 in Apr 1968. The aircraft was leased to Icelandair as TF-FIA and named 'Solfaxi' in May 1971. The aircraft flew with Icelandair until 1989, re-registered as TF-FLG in 1979. It was then sold to UPS as N940UP and converted to a pure freighter. The aircraft flew as a freighter until 2008 - an impressive flying career of 40 years!

 

Icelandair Founded as Flugfelag Akureyrar using a floatplane, Icelandair started its first international service in 1946 with service to Copenhagen via Prestwick as Iceland Airways. Together with London, which was added in 1949, and Copenhagen, the most important destination, flights were originally flown with DC-4s, Boeing 727's, Douglas DC-8s and finally with brand new Boeing 757s. In 1956 company adopted the name Flugfélag Íslands or Icelandair in english.

 

The first Boeing 727s were added to the fleet in 1967. In 1973 a holding company Loftleidir was created and Flugfelag Islands became its subsidiary along with its rival Loftleidir Icelandic. Icelandair merged with Loftleidir Icelandic in 1979.

Both Privilege 757s were flying for El Al. To be honest I would've preferred a Up! or Sun D'Or 738 ^^

N572AA : McDonnell Douglas MD-83 : American Airlines

My 1999 visit to Miami was the only time when some (a few) MD-80s were based there. On every other occasion, it's been A300s, 727s, 757s.

Although registered at DHL Air in the UK, these 757s fly under EAT Leipzig flight numbers using "eurotrans" as callsign. On sundays there is usually a flight departing mid-morning.

One of the lesser known carriers to operate into London Heathrow goes to Kazakhstan's flag-carrier, Air Astana; which currently operates 4 weekly flights between London Heathrow and the capital, Nur-Sultan (previously known as Astana until March 2019).

Air Astana first began operating into London Heathrow in 2004 when the carrier first began operating flights between London Heathrow and Almaty. The Almaty flight was withdrawn on 1st June 2014 whilst they introduced flights from Astana on 31st October 2013. The withdrawal of Almaty saw the two-weekly flights transferring to their Astana flights.

Initially, KC941/942 operated once a week, going over to thrice weekly on 1st June 2014 following the withdrawal of flights to Almaty. For two years between 2017 and 2018, Air Astana have provided 5 weekly flights between London Heathrow and Astana during the peak summer schedule.

With the introduction of the Airbus A321neoLR, of which Air Astana currently have one in service with a further 6 on-order; the flag-carrier have announced changes in regards to aircraft allocation for their London Heathrow to Nur-Sultan flights.

From 29th March 2020, Air Astana will utilise Airbus A321neoLRs on KC941/942 replacing Boeing 757-200s. The flight will operate 4 times a week on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sundays only.

Currently, Air Astana operates 4 Boeing 757s, all of which are Boeing 757-200s. Air Astana have begun the process of withdrawing their Boeing 757-200s in favour of Airbus A321neoLRs, all of which should be withdrawn by 2020.

Foxtrot Alpha Sierra is one of 4 Boeing 757-200s in service with Air Astana, delivered new to LTU on lease from PAFCO as D-AMUH on 20th November 1998 before transferring to Air Astana as P4-FAS on 8th December 2003 before being purchased outright by the Kazakhstan flag-carrier from June 2007 and she is powered by 2 Rolls-Royce RB211-535E4 engines.

Icelandair Boeing 727-185C TF-FLG is seen here in the redesigned 1980s livery, departing from London Heathrow to Reykjavik. Note the nose cone is still in the old livery :)

Plenty of noise and smoke from these old Boeings!

According to my trusty log book the aircraft was on regular flight FI451.

 

TF-FLG c/n 19826 - Boeing 727-185C was originally delivered new to American Flyers as N12826 in Apr 1968. The aircraft was leased to Icelandair as TF-FIA and named 'Solfaxi' in May 1971.

Seen as one of the last departures before the sunlight gets lost for the evening, ready to depart from rwy 01L, 6 years ago.

 

UPS has served OSL for 20 years now, starting with 727s, then 757s, A300s and 767s. UPS is allways first arrival in the morning, and the final freighter to depart in the evening.

As Tropical Storm Hermine charged up the East Coast Sept. 2, 2016, Langley Air Force Base reached out to the Research Services Directorate and NASA Langley Research Center hangar manager Dale Bowser to see if NASA Langley could store a few F-22 Raptors. Even though the hangar in Hampton, Virginia, already had a large visitor — a C-130 from the Wallops Flight Facility on Virginia’s Eastern Shore — the hangar was able to carefully sandwich in more than a dozen Air Force fighters and offer them protection from the wind. NASA Langley photographer David C. Bowman captured the image using a fish-eye lens and shooting down from the hangar's catwalk some 70 feet above the building's floor.

 

The hangar provides 85,200 square feet (7,915 square meters) of open space and large door dimensions that allow for entry of big aircraft such as Boeing 757s and other commercial or military transport-class planes. The hangar normally is home to 13 of NASA Langley's own research aircraft, when they are not out doing atmospheric science or aeronautics research. Still, there is enough space to share with neighboring Langley Air Force Base during emergencies. The facility is rated for at least a Category 2 hurricane.

 

Built in the early 1950s, it was designed to fit a B-36. It can also accommodate the Super Guppy, which visited NASA Langley in 2014.

What a beauty!! Icelandair came out with another breathtaking livery on TF-FIR, one of their 757s! I still haven't caught TF-FIU but this was the first flight of FIR to Paris CDG, so I'm happy I could catch her!

G-BTEJ : Boeing 757-208 : Britannia Airways

Britannia A/w leased four 757s for the summer of 1991, in advance of their own new fleet which began arriving in April 1992.

Fortaleza - Pinto Martins Int'l Airport (FOR/SBFZ)

November 21, 2017

 

A nice visitor to Fortaleza airport, even with this pretty simple scheme. This 757 is an Icelandair machine leased to TACV (together with TF-FII, which i've also photographed). TACV currently have their sole 757 under maintenance, so Icelandair leased them these two 757s. This one features an interim scheme: just the titles at the front and a painted rudder, with the colors of Cape Verde's flag.

 

This rare 757 is seen here on taxiway Alpha, going to the terminal after arriving from Praia as TACV 667. Always a pleasure to see the sleek 757 in Fortaleza!

The use of this out-of-sequence registration is apparently because this was Air 2000's sole 737 in a fleet of 757s. It's derived from the cuckoo, a bird which lays its single egg in a nest of another type of bird.

LGW 28/01/07

 

Azerbaijan Airlines operated scheduled services between Baku and LGW at the time, normally using 757s. The airline moved its services to LHR in later years when slots became available.

Astraeus were formed as a charter carrier after the demise of British World and were based at LGW with a fleet of 757s and 737s. The airline moved away from charter flying and concentrated on leasing in latter years so the livery disappeared.

 

A/c delivered to Air 2000 in 1987 and operated by Astraeus between 2004-2007. It was converted to a freighter and flew for Arrow Air as N822PB and was broken up in 2013.

Fortaleza - Pinto Martins Int'l Airport (FOR/SBFZ)

November 07, 2017

 

A very very rare visitor not only in FOR but also in Brazil! The sleek and elegant 757 of Icelandair visited us operating for TACV as flight VR667/668. What a beauty!

 

Icelandair leased out two 757s, TF-FII and FIW, to help reestructuring TACV. They have several debts and their sole 757 is AOG with engine problems. Icelandair will now help TACV, leasing several aircraft to them.

 

Eyjafjallajökull is seen here at taxiway Alpha, shortly after arriving from Praia. This 757 is named after the Icelandic volcano, which made the news in 2010 after an eruption which caused big chaos in Europe's air traffic.
