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.

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  Smile. Perhaps DAL/NWA could use them on their 753's.

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.

Heck, we don't even see the DL 757's anymore. They're mostly MD80's now. The biggest thing we see anymore are the 737's and the A320's!

I flew into TUS on Sunday Afternoon, Feb 22 and the CO 757 was parked near the Executive Terminal side of the airport.
