    marvinsmith - Thanks man. Ancient history now sadly.
  • Marvin Smith 5y

    You're welcome. Yeah, won't be seeing these anymore ... so it goes.
  • Doug 5y

    Yep.. same for United's tails now too..
  • Marvin Smith 5y

    Yeah, kinda sad to see these long-standing liveries and brands going bye-bye.
  • Doug 5y

    Marvin Smith 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.
  • Marvin Smith 5y

    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.
  • Doug 5y

    Marvin Smith 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
