    Another China Eastern A340-600 to Look Out For

    China Eastern has painted an A340-600, B-6053, in the SkyTeam livery. Apparently China Airlines will soon be painting a 747-400 in the SkyTeam livery as well. Keep an eye out for both aircraft at JFK!

    B-6053 seems to visit JFK a lot too. We shouldn't have to wait long to catch it.

    Excellent! I was just looking at JetPhotos when I saw the China Eastern SkyTeam posted. Definitely on my list.

    Very nice, will China Airlines be the first 744 painted in Skyteam colors? I can't think of any others.

    China Eastern operates 5 Airbus 340-600. So far I have seen B-6050, B-6052, B-6053 and B-6055. Has anyone seen B-6051 yet?

    Yup! - May 29, 2010 was the first time I've caught it. Shot it as AirShow was wrapping up last year.
