LONDON TO ROME
LONDRA A ROMA
This plane was officially named “Piazza del Campidoglio-Roma” by Alitalia, who owned it for the whole 23 years of service until I-BIXR was finally stored ready for scrapping in May of this year. Not today though - we’re taking it out into the skies for another flight and letting those 2 CFM International engines do what they do best!
The A321 is the longest of the A320 family and fit for short to medium rangers in any walk of the world. This time it’s just over 2 hours to the beautiful city of Rome in Italy. Departing south out of London, the route was a scenic one over France and Switzerland before hitting Italian airspace.
It was, as usual, a pleasure to be about the ground and skies on a busy day and the passengers were happy too, albeit a bit bumpy in parts!

Notes: As always, no hard editing was done to the photos, just some personal preference slight changes to the light and contrast and working with what is available – nothing fake added or taken away.
