Earlier this year, we highlighted Jason Hamm, an aviation photographer who lives in Arkansas and works at Little Rock Airport. Jason is well known on Instagram for his amazing tarmac photos that feature plastic comic book and Star Wars figures. From time to time, Jason shares his amazing photography with us. These photos were too great not to share to the whole Avgeekery community. Here’s his story about the photos. His avgeek passion definitely shines through as he describes the unique features of this particular Airbus.
I was SO happy to get this shot of Allegiant’s A319 after pushback. The conditions were perfect! If you look closely you’ll notice there are two overwing exit doors. Almost every other airline that operates A319s have the single overwing exit doors. There are a few exceptions and Great Britain’s EasyJet was one of those exceptions. All of Allegiant’s A319s have come from EasyJet (with the exception of one, I believe). Any airline that flew A319s with more than 150 (correct me if I’m wrong) passengers were required to have two overwing exit doors per side. These airlines were usually the low cost carriers of Europe. N324NV was first flown on February 15, 2006 and delivered to EasyJet on March 15 as G-EZAE. She got a new registration in 2010 with EazyJet Switzerland as HB-JZV before being sent to Allegiant exactly ten years after entering airline service on March 15, 2016.
