Warning: True Airline Dork Alert
First off, I know that 95% of you won’t care about this. But for the 5% who will, US Airways has unveiled its second airplane in its heritage series, where it’s painting aircraft in the colors of the airlines that have been merged into the current US Airways. You can see the first plane in PSA colors here. (thanks to USA Today for that link)
The A319 painted in Piedmont’s colors can be seen here.
Again, I’m a dork about this stuff, but it’s kinda cool. Not in an actual cool way, mind you, but in a guy-who-cares-about-airplane-paint-schemes kinda way.
(And a CORRECTION: Reader Jeff Lee, also a dork when it comes to this stuff, points out that this is, in fact, the 3rd retro livery. You can see the Allegheny plane I failed to mention here. Thanks, Jeff!)
