Can anyone confirm if N334SW is currently the only Shamu aircraft in the new 'Canyon Blue' colr scheme? If not, can anyone tell me which of the Shamu's (I think there are 3), was at MCO yesterday June, 10th, between 2:30PM (It had the new 'Cayon Blue' colors).

I saw a Shamu a couple weeks back at MCO and it was still in old colors. I believe that the third Shamu is actually a 737-500.
The odd thing is, I haven't seen to many of Southwest's special schemes at MCO, just that one Shamu and Arizona One. Seemed like when I worked at DTW, I would see a special c/s every other day and Southwest didn't come to DTW in 1/4 the volume that it does at MCO.

N507SW is Shamu Two, a -5H4.
Funny that you never see any special Southwest schemes at MCO...it seems like every time I'm down there I see one. I've seen Arizona, Triple Crown, and Shamu II all at MCO in April while flying in/out.

Shamu One has the new Southwest colors and is the only -300 with Shamu scheme, the others are -500's N501SW AND 507SW. N609SW, California One also has the new Southwest Blue added to it's tail, it looks really sharp on both planes.
Have a nice day!

I was departing out of Gate 106 (AirTran) for the 2:20 nonstop to CAK. I got to the airport real early and was watching landings when I saw it come in. I eventually worked my way down to the gate where it was deplaning. There were so many people I didn't get close enough for good look at it. My flight was flight was boarding soon so I walked down, got the N# off the port side of the plane and headed back to my gate, figuring I would look it up on A.net when I got home. I would have been the hulking brute in blue jeans, grey polo shirt, glasses and a small blue carry-on bag at about 1:30p.
Did you see Virgin's B747 land? We were the MTE B717 holding for takeoff as it landed. Could hear it's reversers even above our own plane noise.
Last time I flew out of there I saw Spirit's rainbow jet and AAL's B757 Retrojet at the same time, in the same frame and me without a camera!!! ARRRGH!
