      Wow. Caribb, your photos never cease to amaze me. I just wish I travel across countries as frequent as you are.

      You're welcome. Yeah, won't be seeing these anymore ... so it goes.

      Yep.. same for United's tails now too..

      Yeah, kinda sad to see these long-standing liveries and brands going bye-bye.

    17. caribb 43 months ago | reply

      True. To me the entire aviation industry is about "the Present". They sometimes celebrate the past but more often they don't hesitate to wipe out brands, knock down airports and dispose of aircraft like they were empty Corn Flake boxes. It's hard to find history when flying, it's just replaced with the newest shiniest thing. That's what I find sad.

      I don't begrudge them the right to do what makes business-sense, but for those that admire from outside the industry it's heartbreaking to see the older liveries and airframes sent to the dustbin. But, there are flying organizations dedicated to preservation at least.

      I couldn't have said it better myself. I wish they had more commerical aviation museums, preserved airliners and places to honor vanished or highly altered airlines, crews and even airports. there just aren;t enough of them out these. Some aircraft models have disappeared forever.. such a shame. Oh well, time marches on. LOL
