China Southern's B-5586

It's been a while since we've seen a China Southern Airlines 737 delivery going to PVG. B-5586 (c/n 36878, l/n 3631), a 737-86J, is the latest to join the CSN fleet. This particular 737-800 airframe was originally ordered by AirBerlin (AB/BER), but was not taken up, and acquired by China Southern. It's making its delivery flight as CSN517, and is seen above taxiing on the AirService Hawaii ramp.

B-5586 was to have been registered as D-ABKR had it gone to AirBerlin. The airframe was purchased by ICBC Leasing, then leased to China Southern.

Sadly, this is the only time this aircraft will be so clean. Once it gets into Chinese smogspace, it will be dingy and grey.

Nice shot of the DHC-8 landing on 4R.
