Air India Boeing 747-4H6 VT-AIS Sanchi (7779)

Beautiful new livery on this Air India Boeing 747-4H6 VT-AIS which carries the name Sanchi. While accelerating on runway 18 some nice condensation in the engines is showing up! This aircraft is quite new to AI and the first with the new design. It was delivered to Air India on Sept. 22, 2007.

 

This aircraft is number 1,025 of all 747 that were built and has the construction number 25,703. The first flight took place on Mar. 16, 1994. On Mar. 30th it was delivered to MAS (Malaysian) as 9M-MPG. The code 4H6 stands for the first owner MAS. If Air India was the first customer, it would have been 437.

 

BTW: this is my most successful aviation photo! ;-) Thanks for 5,000 views as of 03.05.2009! 30,000 views reached on Jan. 20, 2015.

    The very simple foreground and background, along with the tremendous color, make this photo a winner. Almost forgot, the condensation in the engines is so cool! Great shot!

    Dear Thomas,
    we are organizing a non-for-profit exhibition at the Brandenburger Gate in Berlin, Germany on the topic 'Energy = Work'. I found this picture of yours and it greatly fits into our exhibition topic, in which we focus on energy use and equity in India. Would you mind us using the picture for the exhibition? We will refer to you as the artist as well as to your web space on flickr.com. It would be great, if you could reply as soon as possible.
    Thanking you!
    With best regards

    Hi Thomas,
    gerade habe ich bemerkt, dass die Auflösung für die Ausstellung des Bildes zu gering ist. Könntest Du mir das Original vielleicht zumailen? Meine Emailadresse ist lutz.meyerohlendorf@googlemail.com.

    Here you can see the successor of the Boeing 747 on the Frankfurt routes: the Boeing 777 which Air India uses in two variants: -200LR Worldliner and -300ER. VT-ALU is a -300ER:
