I was just driving down the access road on BFI and I saw a WN aircraft on the delivery ramp on the Boeing side of the field and it appears to be a new special livery. Is this true? If so, what will this one be? I could not get a very clear look at the fuselage due to service structures and the jet blast barricades in the way, but the tail of the aircraft is in plain view, so I am sure it is a WN plane.

Dunno.

But it would be neat if they did their inaugural flight to DIA on "Colorado One".

Does BFI do any repainting for Southwest? The last special themed aircraft needing new paint is "Nevada One". I haven't seen it in a while so maybe it's in the paint shop? Maybe that was the aircraft you saw at BFI? I dunno...

and it appears to be a new special livery.



In what way did it look different than a standard, or partially-painted standard livery?

N223WN was delivered yesterday, 10/26, BFI-PHX. If it was a special livery, it must have been a stealthy one because nobody said anything...

N224WN is scheduled for delivery in the next couple of days, so we'll watch for that one...

Are you sure you don't mean "does Boeing do any repainting for Southwest?"

Sorry, yeah...more like I was trying to ask if Southwest sends aircraft to BFI for repainting. I know it is done at multiple sites.

It has the standard WN canyon blue tail scheme, but the fuselage is not in the canyon blue paint scheme. It is certianly not an unpainted fuselage, as there is color on it. Again, I could not get a very good look at it due to obstruction blocking my view, but I could see enough of it to know that it is not in the standard livery.

On a second note: Just one hour ago (0200 PST, 1000Z), the aircraft was parked in front of one of the 737 paint hangers, still obstructed from view by service structures and barricades, but it is the same aircraft. Some one with binoculars or a telephoto lens might be able to get a good view of it from the fence on Airport Way between Classic Helicopter and the NE Airpark.

I would love to see a WN plane with a gator on one side and a bourbon st. sign on the other with louis armstrong playing his jazz.

Yeah, "Silver One" gets grayer after every make over. It recently got repainted and it's a white-ish gray color when under the bright sun. Now it really looks like "Primer One". See?

Sadly I don't see them painting a "Virginia One" to commemorate their years (5?) in Norfolk, at least not without a well-placed window. Although the VA flag might look good on a Hooters Air 737...

Yeah I wish WN would do something more original with the special themed planes other than the state flags. I mean, most state flags are just not that attractive.
