I have not seen any updates on this subject in weeks and with Widgetheads now gone information is getting difficult to come by. According to my records the following 5500 series birds have been repainted: 5501, 5502, 5523, 5527, and 5530. Can anyone add to this? Also have any been WFU in the last few weeks? Also have any of the "new" MD-90 s been delivered from GSO yet?

Thats all I think are done. There should be an additional one at VCV right now which arrived on May 2nd but I cannot figure out which one it is.

I dont think that any 5500 series have been stored in a while. Last one being 533.

I havent seen an update regarding the "new" MD-90 in a while. I know that there are 5 in GSO and 2 stored in MZJ. Hopefully someone else has a update on their status.

I saw at least one 5500 series 757 at ATL in new colors on Wednesday but didn't catch the tail number.

Are there any interior updates being done to the 5500-series? It looks like they are starting to be used on some of the ATL to Florida flights.

To further update the list, 5527 has not been repainted, and 5503 is currently in paint and should be out within a day or two.

The complete list completed or in progress is: 5501, 5502, 5503, 5521, 5523, 5530
