Ozell, not much has really been painted since Justin and yourself were at CLT last: The ETOPS are obviously PHL only. As far as the 319s many of them make daily appearances at PHL. So Im sure they show up at CLT regularly. I say wait it out for more stuff to be sprayed before you make another trip to USAirwaysLand.

Quoting BatonOps (Reply 6): I'd can't wait to see the Dash 8's in new colors
They would look cool! But don't hold your breath waiting on that. Pull one of these flying dumpsters out of service for a day and Piedmont practically goes into cardiac arrest. I'd rather see the 1989 interior get redone before they put new paint on them.

Quoting MCOflyer (Reply 8): Dash 8's arent flying dumpsters. I love that a/c. What about their mx bases? Its not my fault Piedmont sold some of their a/c.
230 knots cruise in the -100 series. If that isn't a dog, I don't know what is. Don't get me wrong, I put up 2100 hours in the cockpit of the -100 and -300, and it's a fun plane to fly beause it will damn near do anything you ask it to. But the Mesa and Piedmont birds are disgusting inside with aircraft tape, overflow glue, dirty, and worn out seats that are like sitting on plywood.
