I saw this photo on flickr which is a site that houses other photos and I cant help but notice a picture with N334SW repainted in the regular c/s - maybe some WN workers can shed some light to this or maybe its just a type-o but heres the link

Quoting KaiGywer (Reply 3): I think he realizes this, hence he's asking if it has been repainted into regular colors...
The picture is N394SW. N334SW is still a Shamu, but now with the blue tail. The two other Shamus (N501SW and N507SW) were re-painted in all blue, and two new Shamus (N713SW and N715SW) were painted to replace them.

Not that any of us doubt OPNLguy when it comes to WN knowledge, but I can confirm that 334 is still Shamu. I was spotting out at SMF on 12/30 and it came through while I was there. It's now one of my fav. aircraft since I had my 2-1/2 year old with me and I told him that was Shamu..... When we got home, my wife asked him what he saw (expecting him to say airplanes) and he came back with "ShaMooooooo" LOL.

Hey anyone have an Idea when Shamu 334 will get some fresh paint, because In the pictures I seen ( including the one UPS 707 just showed us) and the time I flew on her - she looked sort of fadded and not shiny any more- it looks like Shamu needs bath!!
