Just an update on the repainting of HP's fleet, on Saturday N908AW arrived back in Phoenix sans the Arizona Cardinals colors, perhaps thats why they won Sunday (just kidding). Appears the special schemes are biting the dust one by one..

It was never one of my faves, but it is always sad to see something different go away. I shot it in October05 and even then it was very faded and used up

Thank God! Another of the America West "Ugly Aircraft Series" goes into standard livery!

IMHO, the old "Teamwork" was the worst one, followed by the horrid State of Nevada livery. The only halfway decent one was the State of Arizona one - the original of which was referred to as "the ramper stamper" because rampers always seemed to get injured while working around it.

Well I liked the first Team Work one, but not the second one. Didn't like the base color on the second version.

I also liked the Ohio one from HP and I thought the Diamondbacks and Suns were cool as well.

I was talking to someone recently and they told me that WN is already getting tired of the Canyon Blue scheme. I bet it fades quite rapidly, similar to the old FedEx purple. I wonder if WN will paint the entire fleet Canyon Blue or come up with another scheme ??? I'm just not crazy of the Canyon Blue at all.

You're right, it will now be US's Cardinals Plane. I mean the Eagle's can't be the ONLY team to have an NFL theme plane.

No plans for a US Cardinals plane that I know of, but they are planning a Panthers plane, so the Eagles bird won't be alone.



I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Probably my fav. out of all of those! Actually well, I can't really pick a favorite.. they all looked so gorgeous.

I would have a hard time picking between the Cardinals, the also defunct Phoenix Suns, the Ohio, the Nevada and the Arizona one..

Sucks I'll never see this one again :/

There's still a lot of shuffling around when it comes to where our 757s fly. Currently we have then going PHX-ORD-PHX-SMF, PHX-LAS-ORD-PHX, LAS-DFW-LAS-SFO, SMF-PHX-DFW-LAS-SFO, PHX-SNA-PHX, PHX-LAX-PHX, and PHX-DCA-PHX. Of course, there's also the Hawaii routes: LAS-OGG, PHX-OGG, PHX-HNL, PHX-KOA, and PHX-LIH. I don't think we've got all 12 ETOPS certified yet, as I believe 913, 914, and 915 are not ETOPS certified, and they don't go to Hawaii (915 is the NV state plane). Now that may not be a perfect list, and I may be off on a few routings and might have left a few legs off but I believe that's the bulk of the 757 routings.

As a long time resident of Nevada, I strongly beg to differ. Nothing warms my heart like seeing "Battle Born" roll into town.

Dream on, the Falcons have a better chance of winning the Super Bowl this year than this merger, er, take over, taking place.

Funny you say that because 908 was the plane that suffered severe gear damage after an accident inside the PHX hangar.

Dude, don't even try to hijack this thread with that comment. Start another thread if you want to talk WN liveries on a HP livery thread.

I flew on the Nevada bird last christmas PHX-SEA and SEA-PHX. I was in Seattle for 8 days visiting my family. I was pretty lucky to fly on 915 roundtrip!

Battle Born is not nearly as majestic on your punyassed 737s as they do on our royal 757s. Battle Born exists on a plane in only one form as far as I'm concerned. Just go paint some more fish on your planes and be happy and quit disrespecting Battle Born.

Not talking about WN's version of Nevada. HP's looked much, much better than WN's version of it.
