    A few AA birds to look out for

    ..a special Komen pink-ribbon decal is being applied to selected aircraft. The first two will be a B757 and an American Eagle Embraer.

    Ultimately, eight aircraft will carry this special livery, one B757, one B777, and six American Eagle Embraer aircraft.

    The decal itself weighs only about 50 lbs.; its estimated fuel cost is less than $700 a year. ( that is cool statistic.)

    The rollout of the first two aircraft carrying this distinctive livery is scheduled for Monday, August 11.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    how big is that decal that causes it to weigh 50 lb?
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    While I like the cause, I don't know how good the pink would go up against the bare metal scheme... I guess it'd look fine on the Eagle RJ's.

    Copy cats.

    Not saying the cause is worthy, just seems a shame to copy Delta. Althought DL has been hooked up with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation since 2006. AMR is supporting Susan G Koeman.

    Again, not slamming the cause, but I think DL was first and the pink plane looks great.
    Check out N610DL.

    FWIW - I know a lot of people were saying that Astrojet's colors were looking old...I caught her at KFLL on Friday - seems like she's been repainted...

    AFAIK, its the same astrojet paint as it was when it was delivered around 2000. Next time it goes in for a C-Check I'd be worried......

    i thought it was stickers, not paint. on an airplane that big what weighs more, a sticker or paint?
