I'm was on a biz call today and was staring at a model I have of Cactus' Arizona themed A319 on my desk and it dawned on me...why do I think U.S. Airways will do something on a plane (maybe that one) to memorialize the Tuscon deal. Just a thought. Wouldn't surprise me.

Just a thought. We do get some time to edit posts so we can correct the spelling of Tucson.  

I'd be surprised. Acts of violence and airplanes don't really mix, so making that connection would be awkward and also inappropriate, IMO.

I tend to agree. We didn't see AA or UA break out a 9/11 remembrance livery IIRC. Mass murder isn't something people want to remember...very painful.



So we beat on against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

Why would they want to promote such an awful event.

I guess I was thinking a pink ribbon logo, something like that. But you're all probably right. Not saying I was in favor of it, just wondering.

America West added an american flag or something similar to the picture of the WTC on one of their 757's. I think it was the coast to coast logo jet.

That was a modification to an already existing special livery. But I tend to agree with the others. There will definitely NOT be a special livery for this.

If you think about it, what would that livery look like? Kinda morbid and twisted if you really get down to it.

And just where has this event been overblown? In case you've forgotten, a US Congresswoman was nearly assassinated, and in the process a federal judge and a 9 year old girl were murdered.

Just because the OP had a slightly naive idea doesn't mean the media is evil again.

The same reason you don't see KLM putting a Tenerife logo on a 747.

On a serious note, i was wondering if US Airways would commemorate an Airbus for the Hudson landing, thats something to celebrate with a special Livery/logo.

Basically everywhere. Murder is murder, and the mere fact that a congresswoman was shot should not change our perception. Her life is no more sacred than anyone else's. There were others who were murdered on that same day and I cannot say they were less important than she is.

I highly doubt that we would see US do a special scheme for this incident. You do not see Pearl Harbor paint schemes, 9/11 schemes, Haiti Earthquake schemes, or tsunami schemes. It would be in poor taste if you ask me.

Exactly. Should Delta do a special paint scheme everytime a gang shooting kills a child in Detroit?

I have to agree. I was surprised when all the airlines had little 9/11 remembrance slogans. (Delta: Delta remembers America;AA: Were the airline that is proud to bear the name American;United: We are United;US Airways:Get on Board)

This is quite possibly one of the dumbest things I've heard this week. You really think people really want to see a plane painted like this? The only thing US did on their "Teamwork" plane was add an American flag next to the WTC. The WTC was on the plane before 9/11.

Let's hope if they do anything, they spell Tucson correctly. Does anyone use spell check these days?

Comparing an attempted assassination to a gang shooting is downright stupid. Not only was this the first member of congress to be shot since California's Leo Ryan was assassinated in 1978, but 20 other people were shot that day and six died. How, exactly, do you blow that out of proportion? Get real.

federal judge

I believe killing a Federal Judge is considered an assassination, but I'm not positive. Also, I'd think than painting an aircraft based on these events would only give the twisted murderer/assassin an even deeper sense of accomplishment.

Oh man, there was a shooting is Tuscon too? I have read about the one in Tucson, but that sucks that there was another one. Damn.

Hey, maybe if you want to paint a plane to "memorialize" this event, it can look something like the Southwest Sports Illustrated paint scheme, but instead of the swimsuit model on the side of the plane, it can be the grocery store with police cars and media vans all over it.

Come on man, US Airways does special paint schemes for fun, not for tragic incidents. Just curious what this guy was smokin when he first posted this idea?

No offense but what makes her any more special than the other "hundreds" of victims of violent crime that happen every day? Nope. No special commemoration thank you. And if our young idiot really wanted to "assasinate" the Honorable Congresswoman, he'd have expended all his ammo on her alone. Any commemoration of this would be in exceedingly bad taste.

My main point is, how the hell is a congresswomen special over other human beings... doctors, teachers, etc. Don't get me wrong, I am thankful for her service, but I just don't agree that they should paint a aircraft over this.
