What time is it starting? Press release says 9am CST but another link I clicked says just 48 minutes remaining? Did they really mean 9am EST?

It may not be good for me and my career to post this pic ahead of the unveiling. I will however describe what I see. The tail has red white and blue. The leading edge of the tail has wide blue stripes while the back part of the tail has smaller red stripes. All the stripes are going horizontally. It will be interesting to the entire aircraft!

After all the waiting, anticipation, guessing, and almost 1000 (?) posts here on A.net, this livery better be good.

If there are two aircraft already painted in the new livery, AA sure did a good job in keeping it under wraps!

Can't wait.

I have not seen the logo and as far as I can see, there is no logo on the tail.

I think there may have been a glitch when I click an internal link and the tail appeared. I took a screen shot of it but I just don't feel it wise for me to post that pic here!

Yes red white and blue stripes! I will hold judgement until I see the entire aircraft!

Although looking at it more and more I have to say I think I like it. It's very American!

253 TWA772LR : It's bold, edgy, and modern. I like it!
254 SpaceshipDC10 : Very easily I choose the Peter Max 777, especially since it was unique.
