I have been waiting so long to see this aircraft Bruce. After searching every so many months, only to find photoshopped pictures, it’s finally here. Hopefully it won’t be long until we see this beautiful aircraft landing at my dear Manchester
All the best
Thank you Oliver. It is another step in the merger process. There is now an US 757 in the new colors too. All the best.
NO WAY!? I don’t mean to sound like a complete child but these are 2 aircraft I am desperate to see. Have you got an image on the gallery?
Til next time
N939UW. Yes, just a cloudy shot (not AG quality yet). AA has one too (N185AN).
I’ve just seen a video of N185AN and it was worth the wait. Such a great moment to see a historic AA aircraft finally in the carrier’s new colours.
