A few months ago I believe there was a photo in the database of an AA Convair 990 in the current colors, but when I searched for it today nothing came up. Does anyone have such a photo they could upload?
Also, were any BAC-111s or Lockheed L188 Electras painted in the current color scheme? If so do any of you have any photos of them?

As far as I know, the AA CV-990s were retired before any could be painted in the current colors. However, they did make it into the full Astrojet livery (as seen on the 737-800) but there aren't any photos of them on airliners.
You can see the difference between the liveries in the two Electra photos below. I believe the Electras were also retired before the current scheme was introduced.

Ah interesting... I was sure I had seen a picture of one in the current livery, oh well... It still is amazing the number of different aircraft types the red white and blue livery has been applied to; it was the subject of my first photo album, hence this post.
