Air India waved goodbye to one of the last Boeing 747s on Monday. Upon departure from Mumbai, the spectators were treated to a so-called 'wing wave' by the pilots, the traditional form of farewell 'waving' their wings.

The Indian airline previously took the 747s out of service. This aircraft, the 27-year-old VT-EVA, was one of the last Jumbo jets left in India. One other is also leaving soon, and two others are being dismantled on site in Mumbai.

The VT-EVA was sold to the American aircraft (parts) dealer AerSale Inc and therefore left for the United States. This happened under the temporary registration N940AS.

Air India is sinds de overname door de Tata Group bezig met ambitieuze uitbreidingsplannen. Vorig jaar bestelde de maatschappij maar liefst 470 nieuwe vliegtuigen. De nieuwste aanwinst is de Airbus A350, die vanaf 1 mei ook op internationale vluchten wordt ingezet (tussen Delhi en Dubai).
