Well CO first winglit equipped 757 went on line today June 2, the winglits are back
on N67134, it operated CO's Inagural Flight tonight EWR-ARN. If anyone wants to catch
her at EWR tommorow (Friday 6-3) she is due back from ARN at 1210 CO 63 and departing
to IAH at 1330 on CO 23. Come on guys Mike, Art, Senga, one of Senga's clones, somebody

Looks like I wont be able to make this one. Although there are many clones. Unfortunatly the "Collective" share ONE car. And that car is being serviced.

I'd like to go for it but I want the MAS744 that i was hoping to get as well..lands at like 7pm. Thats a long time to do nothing at EWR.
Please post again when it comes.

Ron, Thanks for posting the info on the COA752WL. I decided to put off the MAS744 until next time and goget the COA. I did make it to EWR for the COA752WL. I did take several shots however, I felt it would be best to use a shot showing both Winglets instead of a profile.

It's a shame that it took so many years after the Cold War for a US airline to go buy a Tu-204.

I still think the TU-204 looks better :)

Maybe we should let Continental know to call the winglet wonders "Tupolevskis" :)

Hey Mark, this bird is actually heading your way Sunday (subject to change) showing doing CO 1854 EWR-PBI

WOW!!...Thanks for the the info! I hope they are using 9L today - weather in South FLA has been wierd this week and had them using mainly 27R and sometimes, even 13 on occasions. If it's 9L, then there is a spot very close to the end of the threshold that I have been going to. I'll see if I can get out there this afternoon and catch it!

Sorry Mark, CO 39 from Oslo arrived about 90 mins late in EWR so CO did an aircraft swap to run PBI on time so no
winglits at your aiport today, sorry for the false alarm.

I'm glad the winglet wonder didn't come into PBI yesterday. When I got to go out to my spot, the weather had come in and it was pretyy dull and wet - would not have been a good shot at all! But, definately going to keep my eye out for it here in the future. The CO 737-800W's are really nice as well as the WN 737-700W's as well! Really nice to see all these winglets in PBI. Maybe the 757W will be there when I fly out of PBI on Saturday morning! :)

That CO plane is a beauty with winglets! I wonder if they will get them for the 762's?
