I love the fact that someone took the time to do this. Pretty good too. Sorry about the photo quality.

I found this near RDU (not on the property but nearby) Is this truck's owner a a.netter? If so, speak up - great job.

Anybody else modified something to show your airline geekness. Let's see pictures. How cool would it be to modify a cheat line of an airline and put that on your car/truck?

Interesting... He must be a Eastern Airlines fan or has worked before for Eastern Airlines.


Never forget to be yourself.

Interesting that they decided to design the logo as it is. That is the correct orientation if the logo were on the left side of the a/c, but, I think when the logo and titles were used stand alone the logo was normally the reverse of as done on the truck mod.

I'm guessing it wasn't Frank Lorenzo's truck. Big grin

Nicely done to whomever did that.

I was at a hobby show and they had a large decal, about that size for sale. It was used for baggage carts and other ground equipment. You can find them on ebay from time to time. I've also seen some old UsAir ones.

A buddy of mine, who is a Boeing (McDonnell Douglas) Engineer, has a 1975 Honda CB-360 with a Ozark Airlines parking pass decal on it. He bought the bike used from an Ozark employee, in 1992, and never plans on removing the decal.

No, but My License plate says "Falstaf" to show off my Falstaff brewery collectible hobby. Back in the 1980s there used to be a early 70s Toyota Land Cruiser that ran around Denver in 1950s Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad livery. I used to see it parked at Caboose Hobbies all the time.

I think that's great! I would be surprised if he wasn't an Air-nutter!
I don't really have a "favorite" airline, so that would be hard to deciede what logo I would want on my car. Maybe SAS? I did however once have a "Lufthansa-Shrine" back in 98. I had a closet space that was empty, and all I did was print out Lufthansa photos and stuck 'em on the wall. Plus, I had time tables, air-sick bags, menus, safety cards, etc.

Wow...really random...

If I'm not mistaken, that's the parking lot of the high school I graduated from...Leesville Rd. High...am I correct?

If so, I wonder if this is a student's doing or the parent...

Slightly off topic, but why is it that license plates are being blurred out everywhere these days...TV Shows, Facebook...it's being done everywhere! It's not exactly a Social Security Number that you keep hidden in your wallet...

I do it when I post pictures of my Blazer, it's just out of an abundance of caution about personal info on the net. The distortion makes it that much harder to find personal info about me. I don't personally want a member of some web site who also happens to be a cop to be able to look it up and find out who/where I am. 
On topic, I was always fond of Eastern's livery back in the day, I loved the green/blue over the polished metal, I dare say more than, gulp, AA's. I remember the thrill the first time I saw a 757, at ATL, when Eastern proudly displayed "757" on the tail (1983?).

Sorry, not quite. The Eastern truck was found in a parking lot off of Airport Blvd. near the the outlet shops mall.

I did that on this picture partly because I actually asked if anyone could identify to whom this truck belonged. No fair using the license plate to figure that out. Also, the owner of this truck didn't ask to have his truck posted on a.net.

I find it hard to believe that other a.netters haven't mod a car or other using and airline theme. This can't be the only truck airliner mod out there.

Don't know about over in the US but here it is relatively easy to get the driver's home address and contact information from the license plate. You have to pay a small fee and fill out a form, and, after passing some rather lax security checks, you get the info!

I saw an early-90s Ford pickup truck in EA grey with Eastern logos on the doors in Daytona a few years ago. I can't remember if it had the stripes painted on it or not, but it looked to be in great shape. I don't know if it actually belonged to EA or if the owner was doing something like this.

Rats...my dad used to work over that direction though...we still go to breakfast at the Cracker Barrel right over there...

I guess on the positive side, I'm better at identifying airports and planes than parking lots  Smile
