Cool looking little bug. The 735 always reminded me of something built for Disneyworld: 7/8th scale so you'd feel bigger than life around it.

What's the tail behind it? Underside of the CO globe in darker colors...

Easy, the 500 is a stubby little thing compared to a 300/700.

The NGs have much taller tails.

The 735 is shorter for one. It's the length of the 736 (which no USA carrier flies) and the 737-200, which is pretty easy to distinguish.

Also, I don't think there are any 736 with winglets installed anyway. But I'm not 100% on that.

By last three numbers in the Registration - the -500s are 601 thru 668; the -700s are 701 thru 750.

I love the 737-500, I prefer the 737-500s to the 737-700s because of the seats. I find the seats on the 737-500 more comfortable than the 73G seats. Winglets on the 737-500 will help on routes such as Newark-Albuquerque, Newark-Tuscon and Cleveland-San Diego, Cleveland-Seattle.

You are correct with the registrations numbers and the last 3, however, the CO fleet consists of only 63 of the B735's (601-664) and the B737's, CO has 36 of them (700-736).

Yeah that is the word at least on the ones you'll be keeping.....if some think they will have a hard time telling what model is what with the 500's just wait till the 300's get winglets!  Smile

But we prefer the 73G and the occasional upgrade to the 738 when a lot of seats are sold.

And the 'c' comes first in Tucson.  Wink

Slight corrections to your fleet numbers...
The 737-500s are 601-633, 636-642, 644-665, 667-668 (634-636 were returned to lessor, 643 W/O and 666 not used)
The 737-700s are 701-724, 726-736, 750. (725 was still an active fleet no. on a GUM based 727 when it came off the line at BFI. It was painted with a reg. ending in 725, fn 725 was actually on for it's first acceptance flight at BFI and then the change occurred)

Those winglets make her look even more like a pocket-sized rocket. Sure can't wait to see all CO's 737s pouring into CLE with blended winglets.

Nope not at all, don't even know where that key is....but as you can see I was logged in so who knows why that happens from time to time but it does.

My only problem today is that I screwed up on the reg. numbers but at least someone straightend me out on that one! Bad iAhFlYr!  Smile
