El Al 787-9

Here is a video of an El Al 789 during it’s first flight at Paine field. This new plane will replace the current fleet such as the 767. I have to say the 789 in El Al’s livery is very beautiful!

Move this to #real-world-aviation

Thank you for moving the topic to the correct board @USA007

Call me stupid, but surely it has more markings due to be painted on it?

Yes, probably, if it is going to look like the 787 in their presentation. I’m not sure about the nacelle though. El Al showed them in white and then blue

The real plane looks so much better than the preview-simulation (as always), can’t wait to see this beauty in service for LY :D

Just coming to a realization,

EL AL operates their 763 to Johannesburg, and the 789 are due to replace the 763, so, will we be getting the 789? Fingers crossed! 🤞
