    Another classic scheme gone. Sad.

    Sad indeed, but the old style "AA" on the tail combined with the new fuselage color and logo just looked god awful in the artist renditions.

    Isn't that Japan Airlines coming back with old logo?

    When I did start taking photos, I didn't know nothing about "special", rare...planes/schemes ....etc...
    While re-organizing my aircraft photos, I noticed that I had pics of this:

    Gintaras, that 767 was indeed stored in October or November if I recall correctly, although she is now in Canada, perhaps for parting out. There is a 737 with the yellow ribbon, and although I haven't seen a an ERJ with one at DFW in phone time, it is possible that it lives on.

    Manny, which 757 has the ribbon? I have never seen a pic, but it'd be a race to catch it before it retires or repaints when I get back from SYD.

    The Flagship 762 is being "stored" in Canada? I thought it was headed to KVCV...

    Steve, I believe she initially went to either Roswell or Victorville, but a spotter in Canada later noted her at YYZ (could be wrong on the specific airport) in Canada, well over a month after her withdrawal from service. He could have been mistaken, but an AA 762 with a yellow ribbon in Canada seems fairly distinctive. Who knows...

    You mean I have to keep looking at that gin and birthday cake mess of a tail? Crap. Oh well I suppose there are other things to truly get upset about

    Cute article. Imagine actually letting the minions at AA AActaully believe they had any say in the color scheme...
    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.
