This aircraft saw three repaints in less than two years. In April 2017 it was painted in Sunweb colours, only to return to regular Transavia colours about six months later, in October 2017. Strangely though it was not painted in the then current new scheme that the airline had introduced in January 2015, but in the old scheme the airline used before that. Apparently that was a mistake, because about a year later it was repainted yet again, this time finally in the airline's current scheme as seen here.
Named after Russian scientist Dimitri Ryabushinsky, who in 1904 together with Nikolay Zhukovsky founded Russia's (pre Soviet) Institute of Aerodynamics. Registration previously used on a Gulfstream IV from Apr 1989 until May 1999, and on a Gulfstream IVSP from Oct 2006 until Dec 2010. It was allocated to this A321 in Aug 2016.
