This Week in 5 #AvGeek Photos

Graphic by Raisch Studios

A photo is a thousand words. An aviation photo can serve as a testament to the essence and magic of flight while also telling a story. Each week, the AirlineGeeks team compiles five aviation photos that tell a story and capture the uniqueness of flight.

This image by photographer Sebastian Herb (@muc.aviation) depicts the complex work that goes into performing maintenance checks on aircraft. The A380 shown was in for an IL-Check at the Lufthansa Technik facility in Hamburg.

On Thursday, Air Canada revealed a brand new livery which was unveiled just in time for the airline’s 80th anniversary and Canada’s 150th anniversary. The airline said the new livery reflects the nation’s’ heritage. Tom Podolec (@TomPodolec) captured a great image of one of the first repainted A321s along with an old livery 787 in Toronto.

Bernie Proctor (@aussiepomm) photographed Etihad Airways flight 484 arriving at Brisbane Airport while an Air New Zealand A320 painted in the Star Alliance livery awaits clearance for departure during a beautiful summer afternoon.

An Air China Boeing 777-300ER with the special “Smiling China” livery departs Vancouver Airport for a 10-hour flight to Beijing. Christian Ordanza (@charlieoscar98) spotted the aircraft’s departure during a cold and snowy afternoon.

Fasil Getachew (@A6EDF) captured a China Eastern Boeing 777-300ER at Washington-Dulles after snow crippled New York-JFK. Winter weather in the Northeast caused many flights to divert to Dulles.
