Embraer 5N-VNI rebranded as Nigerian Eagle
The latest aircraft in the former Virgin Nigeria fleet to undergo re-branding for Nigerian Eagle at the Lufthansa Aircraft Paint facility at Shannon is Embraer ERJ-190LR registered 5N-VNI. The aircraft is msn 19000226 and was delivered to Virgin Nigeria as recently as mid July of this year. 5N-VNI arrived in Shannon for painting on October 15 last and was briefly rolled out of the hangar on Thursday last before finally exiting yesterday. As with sister ship 5N-VNH which was also painted at Shannon earlier this month, VNI, pictured above on Twy 7 this morning seems to be in no hurry to depart.
