I am frequently asked “what is the joying of spotting?” to which I reply “each aircraft has a history and a story to tell.
This airframe MSN 2914 was first delivered in late 2006 to the erstwhile Bangalore based Air Deccan, as VT-ADS.
Air Deccan was acquired by and merged in to Kingfisher Airlines. For a brief period VT-ADS operated as the “Simplifly Deccan” brand of Kingfisher before being returned to the lessor and parked in Phoenix. (Photo courtesy Sean D’Silva)
In March this year, MSN 2914 was leased to Srilankan Airlines and registered 4R-ABH.
In September, Srilankan Airlines received a major boost when Kingfisher Airlines withdrew its Bangalore Colombo service, thus prompting VT-ADS to return back home to Bangalore, this time as 4R-ABH.
It is just nice how the dots connect up.
Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting Bangalore Aviation.
