Air China's B-5201

Our September edition of "HNL RareBirds Classic" goes back to October 2005, as Air China began promoting the 2008 Summer Olympics that Beijing would host. B-5201 (c/n 34023, l/n 1795), leased from AWAS, was the first 737 to promote the 2008 Beijing Games, and is seen above taxiing to its parking spot at HNL, as it made its delivery flight from BFI. The airline was listed as the official airline of the Beijing Games.

This special livery was worn until September 2008, when it was painted in the standard Air China livery.
