At ORD today, parked at T3 (the K gates), I saw N472AA parked at I think K6 or so. The starboard engine and reverser was scorched. Was this the one that had the birdstrike a few months ago? Why didn't they repaint or replace this cowling?

Unfortunately, I could not get at my camera quickly enough to do it. I am not at the airport anymore, and the aircraft is almost certainly no longer at the gate. I don't think you would be able to see it unless you were airside anyhow, and I can't get to that point without buying another ticket.  Big grin

The cowling didn't look damaged, just scorched. I would think that it could be repainted.

TR's get dirt very quickly due to the heat and soot exhaust they are exposed too. Really no big deal

I think what you might be referring to was what you will see below:

This is not what I am referring to. In this case, the cowling was black on all surfaces.

On those MD's the APU exhaust exits directly onto the starboard engine near the back of the engine. Probably what you saw. It can look pretty alarming - I've seen it when de-icing alot.

I don't think that was the plane involved in the bird strike. I believe the birds were ingested in the port engine of that MD-80.
