Any chance they will keep the liveries after the playoffs end?

They didn't paint them just for the playoffs. They've been on their for a while.

Yes, and the Cardinals don't even fly US, they fly NW. The Eagles just switched to US from DL but they still use DL when they want the 763 for west coast and special occasions like today. It was a great weekend of football, next weekend will be even better!

Thats correct, I remember seeing the Steelers livery a/c leave ROW back in 2007. If I remember correctly it was around Sept. It was painted there.

Isn't it a shame that none of the 4 use US as their charter.

The Eagles use NW as their charter. It's been discussed here numerous times. Their contract was the DC-10, plus 1 747 during regular season (usually used for Dallas game) and then 747 for playoffs. I don't know if they used the 757-300 or the 330 this year.

US 9098 B752 - Steelers
NW 9962 B752 - Cardinals

Been a few years since the Eagles were on NW.

That is a beautiful aircraft, I had the pleasure of handling it several times at SNA. One of my all-time favorite liveries... and I'm not even a Cardinals fan!  Wink

Today's Charlotte Observer online has a story about the US theme jets with pics. I don't think they came from A-net though.

The Eagles were on a Delta 767-300 to/from MSP this past weekend.

Yep, and they also used the DL 763 to twice earlier this year to go to SFO and SEA. I guess they will be taking the train up to Jersey this weekend.

Usually when the eagles panthers, steelers play the cardnals. They will have either three planes parked next to the cardnals plane at the gates in PHX. When I work durning game day and the cardnals play one of these other three they will have both planes parked next to each other for a little bit during the day. Its kinda cool seeing that.

Isn't the Cardinals plane ex-West metal, while the other three are from the east?

How often does the Cardinals plane cross paths with any of the other three?

Mmmmm... one of them is gonna fall... Off-topic (and wrong forum), but ARZ may have it tough this weekend against Carolina...

I was watching the Peyton Manning press conference after the Colts lost to San Diego the back round had Air Tran all over the backround as their sponsor yet the Colts use NW/DL for their flights.
