Nice shot! What was it like being there this morning? That's pretty cool that your LGA badge gets you out on the ramp in PHL.

How'd you edit the pic so fast?

Nice shot Matt. Was nice to see you guys down there. Hope the flight back went well, the drive wasn't so bad.

Glad the plane was still clean when I got down there to shoot it. Our shots look similar.

I really like it, I hope to cath it at LGA someday.

I think that the A330-300 would look great in these colors!

Will America West use this livery as well?

Josh, our LGA Badge does not get us out on the ramp in other airports that easily but this morning we knew someone that "did the right thing".

Mike, nice seeing you also, really like the Parker/Lakefield shot, that's a classic.

There is a possibility this aircraft could be in LGA (MAYBE) in the next few days, I will check the routing's when I get in Wednesday at 1300. If anyone wants to see this aircraft in a bad way then check this thread at least twice a day for the next few days. I will up date it here, but with some things maybe in the works it might be on a half day or even few hours notice.

If you like the livery then great (I don't love it but I like it) but if you don't that's cool but then wait to see it person especially in nice light like we had this morning in PHL, it looks much better in person than in the photo's

I can't wait to see the Piedmont Retro Jet, that will totally ROCK !!!!!


Cheers LGA777

Thanks! Glad you liked that one.

After leaving you guys, I headed over to the other side of the airport for the departure shot. Well, I missed it by a few minutes :( but i did get a takeoff shot of that AA MD80 with "Working Together" and a UPS MD11 before I headed home so it was worth the drive over there.

Mike when we took off and made the 180 turn to the east (airbourne at about 0915) we got a great view of PHL, got some great airport overview shots, there where two UPS MD-11's in line for takeoff (I see them in my photo's)
that appeared to have only two US aircraft in between them in line so I hope you got both. Nice bonus for the drive down.

Great shots guys, but I'm disappointed by the livery. And how/why did they bring Mickey Mantle back to life?

Ron/Matt,

You guys screwed up by leaving on that 840am flight. Look what showed up after you left... :)

Another photoshop Masterpiece by MikePhoto's ! And no offense to fans of LH's livery (or lack of) but there scheme makes the new US scheme look pretty amazing by comparison, just my two cents.

I thought either I was out of the loop and US already had an A330 in that scheme or Mike was applying some GREAT skill to adding the scheme in Photoshop. Really good edit there Mike!!

Can't fool you guys :)

Thanks! Glad you liked it. That livery certainly does look good on the A330.

Mike, not to kiss ass, but I've seen many people do this and yours just looks among the best. I sit here looking for faults. I'm usually very good at picking out fakes but yours are nearly seamless.

Mind if I start a request thread here like we had on Anet that time? ;)

While Mike put together an excellent fake that is probably the first Express aircraft to get the new colors as many Air Wisconsin CRJ's will need to be repainted into the US livery.

Thanks guys. Sure Phil, no problem at all. But just hope everyone knows that I can only do so many :)

Mike, I would find it extremely valuable and informative if you could someday post a narrative (or, even better yet, a graphical) guide of your workflow as to creating these amazing fake images. As others have said, the pictures look flawless. I often wonder how you get such detailed paint schemes transferred from an A320 to an A330 and then to an ERJ!

Josh,

I did have a graphial walk-thru up on my old-site (had to take it down, too many hits). I'll try to get that part going again for you guys here.
