Hey everyone,

I did a little search to see if anyone else had reported it, but came up with nothing. I was in RIC the other day (3/27 to be exact), and while waiting for the hotel shuttle to take us to the terminal, I noticed a very distinct tail of a 737 belonging to Lauda, taxiing for takeoff. At first glance, it looked like a -600 series, but since it was at a distance, I couldn't really be sure. Also, when it finally did take off, it appeared that the titles were removed. But the livery was unmistakably Lauda. Does anyone know why this plane was there? Is it being leased to a US carrier, or chartered?

Speaking of Lauda in unusual places, I saw one of their -800s on the Royal Jet/Abu Dhabi Aviation apron in AUH a few weeks ago too, complete with Lauda titles.

It seems like there is a good chance of that.

It isn't a delivery flight since there have been no 736s produced recently and I haven't seen a 73G for Lauda come off the assembly line recently, but I don't pay that much attention, so I could be wrong.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

I was under the impression the Navy has a leased Lauda 736 operating out of that area, so I'm fairly certain that's the one the OP saw...

This was doing touch and gos when I visited Roswell in December. I just assumed it was between leases.

Devilfish, yes! Thank you very much. I do recall the titles being missing, but I couldn't tell if it was a -600 or -700. I guess this would confirm it! So the US Navy is leasing a Lauda jet, thanks for clearing that up. Cheers!
