Original Aircraft Skin / Aviationtag / Lufthansa D-AIPB
The D-AIPB was a real oldie, sporting the very early MSN 70. To put this into context: Airbus already delivered MSN 10,000 to Middle East Airlines in 2020 and is currently at MSN 11,137.
The D-AIPB left the factory doors for the Star Alliance member back in October 1989 – so before the reunification of Germany – and was christened “Heidelberg”. It was not until 2019, so after more than 30 years of service, that the Airbus A320-211 was retired and finally recycled in 2020 in Ostend.
