I was driving by the tower today to eat dinner (haha) after work, and noticed a CO 757 with winglets over by atlantic aviation. I looked up the reg on a.net mobile and sure enough, it's CO's first 753 with winglets! Anyone have any idea what it's doing in TUS? I swear I saw it last week sometime parked at the same place. Not a charter already is it?

Aviation Partners is probably doing a lot of tests with it at TUS as ship 134, the launch 757-200/Winglets was also put through tests at TUS. It's not operating for CO at this time and hasn't since Jan. 3rd when it left for the installation.
"Irregardless, it's a Cat III airplane, we don't need an alternate!"
A sample of what is to come and it looks rather handsome, aside from the fact the winglets seem smaller (they are the same size as the 752's?) due to the 753's length. Can't wait to see more CO 753W's . Perhaps DAL/NWA could use them on their 753's.
Don't you want to hang out and waste your life with us?

I saw the 757 landing last week also. From where I work I can see most of the landings. The only 757 we see is the DL flight from Atlanta. I recall a year or two ago while waiting for flight I saw a CO 757 taxing around at a rather high speed with doors open.
