It was the Yankees returning from SNA. It departed - empty - about 9:15AM as flight 1931 back to EWR for repositioning.

Futt is right again. Good research and glad you caught it Cancidas! A unique plane to see at LGA. I'm jealous.

Back in 96, when the CO 757's were hot new items (can you imagine that? going nuts to shoot a CO 757) it was very common at LGA. It's too bad I was still shooting prints and didn't have a DSLR :) Here's a preview scan:

It is however rare to see it these days!

That's awesome, Mike! I wouldn't be too quick to pass CO 75s off, though, since yesterday at EWR I was hard pressed to find one without winglets. Always a challenge. Go figure. :)

What? There are 757's out there without winglets? No way... :)

It's funny that the winglet-less CO 757's are now become rare once again..go figure is right! BTW-nice pics of the B6/EWR event...any interesting aircraft spotted there that day? EWR is usually good for a surprise or two.
