Indian Airlines VT-EYG at Shannon
Indian Airlines are currently in the process of handing back three Airbus A320 aircraft to their lessor. The first of the aircraft, A320-231 registered VT-EYG departed Mumbai for Larnaca en-route Shannon yeseterday along with sister VT-EYI. At lunchtime today VT-EYG arrived in Shannon with VT-EYI expected later, it having routed Larnaca - Bratislava - Shannon.
VT-EYG is a 1992 build machine with msn 326. Prior to being placed on the Indian register the aircraft was registered F-WQSM for a brief period having been registered SU-RAB with Shorouk Air who leased it to a number of operators.
Thankfully VT-EYG hadn't been "whited out" prior to lease handback and is seen in full colours on finals to (a sunny !) R24 at Shannon this lunchtime. The aircraft is night stopping with sister ship -EYI due later. The third aircraft, VT-EYH departed Mumbai for Larnaca today so is a good candidate for dropping into Shannon tomorrow.
