LONDON – Boeing has unveiled its 2022 ecoDemonstrator livery on a Boeing 777-200, with Boeing saying the aircraft will be tested soon.
Below, you can see the video in question:
According to JetTip on Twitter, the aircraft in question is N861BC, which is a 19.6-year-old Boeing 777-200.
The aircraft started out its life with Singapore Airlines, with the delivery happening in November 2002 as 9V-SVL.
9V-SVL was then transferred to Boeing Capital Corporation in March 2018 as N817BC, before being delivered to Air New Zealand in May 2018 as ZK-OKI.
From there, it remained with the Kiwi-based carrier for a year before going back to Boeing Capital Corporation in May 2019. Around seven months later, the aircraft then went to Surinam Airways as PZ-TCU.
Surinam Airways then kept hold of the aircraft until January 2022, when it was transferred to the Boeing Aircraft Holding Company and has been stored in San Bernadino since May 6.
And that is that on the history of the aircraft. It will no doubt make some progress on the ecoDemonstrator program, especially as the ramp-up surrounding sustainable aviation becomes more prevalent.
