Quoting IAHcsr (Thread starter): Artist Peter Max is fully responsible for what you see on N77014, AKA CO Ship 014..
Does Mr Max realize the cult following he has on A.net? Or better yet do the folks at CO realize it? It would be fun if by the most minute remote chance one of them ever showed up at SLC! Most likely a diversion IF it ever happens.

Only when it's worn down enough to need a visit to the paint shop .. While I haven't had a close look in some time, I'd say Old Max's artwork is holding up much better then I've seen on other CO flying machines.
Quoting MIAMIx707 (Reply 9): not if they decide to paint it in another special scheme
... It is possible that one of the two new T7s coming in the next few months might not have the standard CO livery... Or so rather vague rumor has it..

Seriously, I follow the PM threads for one reason, to get a better idea of the life of a real airframe. Where do they fly? How much system variation? Amount of down time? From one thing I've learned from these threads, CO's 777 network has a bit of downtime. This isn't a bad thing, its required due to their global presence. But by having a dedicated fleet for long haul, they minimize the number of locations where PM naps. It definately emphasizes the need for fleet standardization.
IAHcsr, could I ask a favor? At the start of each PM thread could you put a decoder for how you use the symbols? Thanks in advance and thanks for the good work! (You are already on my RU list.)

Quoting JRadier (Reply 14):
When will you be there? I'm most likely in town 26th-29th.
Quoting IAHcsr (Reply 18):
I'm hanging out at IAH gates E15-24 Tu-Sa after 1400hrs.
I'll be there from the 26th till the 31st
Though 26th - 29th are not destinated to photography, only 29-31st.
But if MAX shows up on any of those days I'll do my best to get to the airport, I'll be staying on a hotel near the Galeria those days but will move to the airport perimeter for the weekend.
Hope to see any of you guys there.
