Congrats on your two very nice photos! The first one should become quite a rarity.
The aircraft looks much better in the revised livery. It's a shame US Airways made such an expensive mistake by getting it "not-quite-right" the first time around but I'm impressed that they listened to the feedback and improved the livery in a rather short period of time.

Thanks for sharing the photos, Ron. This grayhair remembers back to 1960 and Allegheny Convairs parked at DTW next to a NW Electra or DC6B.
I like the Idea of USAirways and the "throwback" paint schemes.
Now if we can get NW to do a 757 in pre meatball(early-mid 60's)scheme
along with a North Central paint scheme complete with Herman, that would be very nice.
If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.

The thing that amazes me is that they are such subtle changes!
A little bit larger logo, slimmed up the cheatline, moved the reg, less paint on the nose....all could have been avoided had someone paid more attention in the design process.
Almost as if they came up with the design from being told what it looked like, as opposed to having an actual model or picture to work from.
I mean, it's not like it's a wholesale change or anything!
But as the saying goes, "The Devil is in the Details"
This is so much better! Good job US!
Goes to show everyone that this ISN'T your father's US Airways/USAir/Allegheny.....don't think they would have cared much!
