I read this on US Airways "The Hub"......

OUR PROUD HISTORY: A SMILEY FACE GRACES THIS FLIGHT
Onetime PSA captain Bill Mulcaha's retirement flight on Tuesday was a special one, completed in a Boeing 757 with a PSA smile right on the nose. Bill joined PSA in 1978 and retired at age 60 after completing a Montego Bay-Charlotte flight. He was greeted in Charlotte with a water cannon salute, a bagpipe serenade by first officer Danny Stewart and a cadre of friends and relatives.

Bill, who opened both Monterey and Portland, Ore., as PSA cities, said he will soon begin a new job as a corporate jet pilot. Captain Ted Schott, another PSA veteran, called Bill someone “who always sees the good in people.”


Has anyone shot it yet? This is the first I've heard of it.

The PSA smile has popped up on US Airways a/c (unofficially) for a number of years. They remained on the PSA a/c in the hybrid scheme for awhile, but over the years, some ex-PSA maintenance folks put them on US a/c.

I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

There are others out there with the 767 being tagged as well with the smile. Its probably one of the "little" things from the US Airways heritage that brings a good feeling inside, no matter for how short of a time, to any employee that sees it.

The CRJ's in the "old" navy blue colors had a little red smile under the nose.

It was cool to see a Beechcraft King Air in USX colors with the smile. I did
not know that the King Air was used in commuter service. What routes
were the States West King Airs used on?

Having flown PS maaany times and never having flown US, that smile reflects the way most everyone I know looks at PS. Remember, the L-1011's were called "Mother Grinning Birds!" Yes, we all caught PSA's smile. From the Electras to the 146's, PSA was California. Maybe now that US and HP are "one," they could look into a special marketing theme using the old PS ideas.
