Are you sure that 'another' one is going for Southwest 'canyon' blue, and not Pepsi Cola blue?
I found this picture looking for a blue -200 and found none. And you saying 'another' one implies that there are already 1 or more -200's in blue.
And correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like there are a bunch of squatters on this site armed with their cameras that shoot three rolls of film, within seconds of a plane emerging from a hangar (apparently they have nothing better to do with their time but sit and wait for a plane to emerge....just like a butterfly from a coccoon.). And they take their pix, and then rush right over to the photo lab and then home so they can upload their pix, so that a livery can be less than 24 hours old and already be on this site.

There are 3 blue 2H4s out there, but they are all slated for disposal by 2004 (when the last 2H4 is sold or stored). I don't have the tag #s off the top of my head but I can find them if anyone is interested. Peace to All.
BTW, the A/C in question is emerging from a C-check, probably the amarillo facility, but I guess the photographer would know better. Doing this involes some Xray work on the 2H4 so it is a convenient time to strip the paint (when neccessary). Personally, I don't see how, but that's the way we do it.
