It seems as if at least one other RJ has received the new colors of ExpressJet. I caught this one (N14158) today in the middle of some heavy flurries as it taxied to the de-ice pad. A lot of people hate the colors, but I think they are kinda cool...but then again, I liked Independence Air's too!
Thanks JSD and Viasa for the list....to be perfectly honest, the reg. is very difficult to read and was going to confirm it today at work. I assume I have it right, but not seeing it on your list has me wondering...
And I'm not sure why he was here. When I came in he was parked up at the maintenance hangar, and I just reached my spot when he came by to de-ice. I'll update later when I can find out more from the MX guys....

I fly out of CXO which is Montgomery County Airport. The other day there was one on the ramp waiting to be painted and ship 185 was waiting to be picked up. Wings Aviation is doing the painting on this side of the border. There's another place down in Mexico as well.

Quoting A340Spotter (Reply 3): Interesting about the Xjet 145XR showing up in CLE. Presumedly on a charter, Chuck? Don't know if they can run these planes on COEX service anymore...
Yep, this aircraft was in CLE to do the charters. There have been a few out of there and some at BKL. We can't use these planes on the COex routes anymore since they have been removed from the agreement.
FYI for everyone --> ship #s 160-204 will all be painted in the new colors. The 69 removed from COEX were the 44 NEWEST XRs and the 25 newest LRs.

Quoting A340Spotter (Reply 20): Chuck's shot above may not have been ship 158 then? 188 would be more likely?
You know... it is possible. I just had the thought that we may have skipped some numbers in the ship sequence. I do that we are painting the newest 44 XRs. I will see if I can find the list of ship numbers. They are churning out the new paint jobs pretty quickly right now.
