Airbus A319 (N744P)

送信時刻:

AAL's N744P, the Piedmont heritage special livery A319 that recently emerged from the paint shop displaying the "American" title instead of the former "US Airways" nameplate, accelerates down runway 16L to begin a delayed departure to KPHX. I caught it rotating just a few seconds later, but this snap shows the new "American" brand better.

John, not only are the PSA heritage and this Piedmont heritage repainted, the Allegheny-livery A319 is newly repainted too. You'll catch them all soon, for sure. Eric, I definitely do. "The Route Of The Pacemakers!"

Wish they would re-paint some of these in Victorville (KVCV)!

They can put the Piedmont name on whatever they want, but USAirways or American will never hold a light to that wonderful airline. In a way, I resent this paint job for several reasons, but mostly because USAir took Piedmont and ruined it.

Rob, I understand your feelings. American took over Reno Air and rapidly dismantled it, too. I have heard there will someday be a Reno Air heritage schemebird flying under American's label, and I am looking forward to seeing that livery again just for the memory jog. I can concur with you, but I like seeing this livery in the skies again.
Norfolk Southern and Union Pacific have been painting locomotives to pay tribute to pioneer companies that now make up the modern system. It is so nice to see the airlines doing this as well. Will we see Republic or Great Lakes?

5* again Gary! I worked for Piedmont from 1984 until they were merged with Agony Airlines, aka USAir. Thanks for capturing the Speedbird and sharing!

according to a United check pilot I talked to last month, united is planning a retro 737 with the United "Tulip Petals" livery in the near future...

Dave, my apologies for not replying sooner; I just now read your comment while I was preparing to reply to Sam. I guess I missed seeing your comment at the time you posted it. I did not know you had worked for Piedmont. I've got a couple late-1960s Bl&Wh clicks of a Piedmont Fairchild on s/final to Washington National. Those pics are certainly nothing to brag about but they are Piedmont birds. I think one of them was the "Pacemaker James _____ " (don't recall the last name right now but it will come to me eventually). Maybe I'll post it to the FA gallery, but it is a scan of a B&W photo and I was only about 17 when I clicked it so normally I don't share any of those old snaps on a national aviation site like FA. If you'd be interested in seeing it, I can email it to you.
OK, now, to reply to Sam ... lol ... That's neat news! I'd real enjoy seeing a Blue Tulip retro livery. I've got a whole ton of Blue Tulip shots but seeing it back as a retro would be a special treat. I've got one pic I'll try and locate in my files from back in 2007 that I took with a simple point-and-shoot camera; it is a neat early-AM pic of three Tulip-tails: UA and TED ... but it is a close up pic of just the three tails next to each other. If I can find it, I'll post it even though it's a pic from my first days using a digital camera so it's a low Quality shot.
Sam, Thanks for passing along the heads-up from the check pilot. ;-)

Gary...just saw a treat today...blue tulip trans state 145...thought they were all repainted by now...luckily I was wrong!!!! N842HK. I'll post it soon...
Whatever happened to expressjet's 145 that had orange and green livery? I know it was when they were xjet.com for about a year feb 2007-mid 2008

Gary...upload as many old photos as you can...I've put up a lot from old postcards and it's bringing back a lot of memories to FA members...I've noticed other people doing the same recently...I started a revolution haha

Gary, "pacemaker James river" was the name of a dc-3, f-27 and a 737-200

I'm not sure if the tulip paint will be the newer blue or the old orange...either way I hope it really does happen!
