Airplane Artwork – Cathay Pacific Boeing 777-300ER climbing out of Chicago O’Hare


It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more airplane art.

This week we have one Cathay Pacific Boeing 777-300ER Climbing out of Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport as it begins the long journey back to its home Hong Kong International Airport.

Cathay Pacific operates a fleet of 41 Boeing 777-300ERs. The airline also operates the Airbus A330-300, Airbus A350-900, Airbus A350-1000 and Boeing 777-300 in its passenger fleet.

These planes connect Hong Kong to the world.

This plane – B-KPO – was delivered to Cathay Pacific in January 2010 – making it almost 12.5 years old. The plane has been quiet for the past week as the plane was not showing any flights. In the past few weeks, she has flown a total of six sectors from her home base Hong Kongoperating to Manila, London Heathrow and Frankfurt.

More aircraft art next week!
