Hi!
Does anybody know if the original Pan Am (I) repainted any of its leased 737-200's in the final billboard colorscheme? All photos I have seen feature the 70's blue cheatline design.

Thanks for any help!

Yes they painted at least one of them in new colors. it was one of the ones with "AF" as part of the tail number. It may have been N64AF. I have a postcard of it. It probably still had Air Florida interiors though.

The Pan Am (ex-Air Florida) 737-200 that I flew MIA-TPA on in August 1988 was in the new scheme, despite still having the full Air Florida interior. I remember it was the only Pan Am 737 in MIA that day in the new livery, although all the 747s and 727s (plus the A300s which never had the old livery) were in the billboard scheme.

I never identified the aircraft I flew on that day...Can you help me to? How many of Pan Am's ex-Air Florida 737s were painted in the new scheme in August 1988?

Looks like N67AF probably was;

A total of 4 PA 737-200s were repainted in the "billboard " scheme by 1989. All retained the original Air Florida interiors. 2 were returned to the leasors in 1990 and the final 2 remained in service until Dec 3rd, 1991 when Pan Am shut down operations. There were many other 737's that flew in Pan Am colors although all but 2 were based in Europe. The 2 based stateside were in operation until the end.

737-200 domestic routes....

MIA-ATL-JFK-ATL-MIA (aircraft 1) (daily return trip)
MIA-MCO-IAD-MCO-MIA (Original aircraft 2 itin until 12/90)
MIA-IAD-JFK-IAD-MIA (ending aircraft 2 itinerary 12/90 - 12/91)

Sure does look like the Panam 737-200 in the photo is pretty well beat (paint)

The actual plane shown was used at the time on a routing from SFO-LAX-SFO and so on.. It only lasted a brief time and was used till some of the planes could be returned to the leasors. They had previously been in Europe on IGS routes.

I flew on a Pan Am 732 in the billboard scheme in 1987 on the BNA-PIT-JFK route. God I miss Pan Am!!


I've flown on 9V-SPK.

Thanks again for all information so far!
