An evocative shot of a battle scarred tough old airliner. Nice photo.
Philippe Andres
I like the way you framed it. An always impressive beast.
I don't know if a "bath" will help this livery, it has certainly seen some wear and tear.

Oh's time for the airline operater to retire this old aircraft.The livery sucks.

There's a spot with this girls name on it out in the Arizona desert. I would bet money she served us well.
Roger Curtiss

It looks to me like she isn't as bad as other make her to be. She sure is taking a lot of heat from this self-appointed peanut gallery. If any of us here were to step up for scrutiny, I would bet none would look or perform this good!

Nice shot extracting EI-XLI's emotional tale, Danny! If she could talk, I am sure she would have a lot to say sharing her laughs and tears.
What Airline is this ??

Very cool shot of a really dirty plane!
Richard Myers
That's an aircraft that has Character!
The airline is Transaero which is or at least was a Russian domestic and international airline until it went bankrupt in 2015. In its 25 year history Transaero never had a loss of life or a hull loss and was ranked in 2014 by the German Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre or JACDEC, as the 17th safest airline in the world and safest airline in Russia.
