I was coming out of class a UNLV today, and of course I am right under the departures at LAS.

Well, I saw the usual southwest, delta, united, american, america west, etc, but I also saw an MD-80 that I couldn't identify.

It had a white body, with a strip going around the plane that looked like red, orange, etc. and a checkmark looking thing on the tail.

Is this the new Vanguard look, or is it some odd airline>!?!

I think so, but instead of the big area of maroon/red/brown whatever color it is, it was just white.

But the other markings match. So I am guessing it was Vanguard.

Hybrid scheme the one I saw, maybe?

Vanguard are painting the back end of their planes different colors. They have an MD-80 with a white back end and a white front end, with just the band colored. That's your bird.

That would be it! Thanks!

When did they change from the blue colors and do they still use 732???

Vanguard started getting the MD80s in March & April, each MD80 has been a different color tail but with the same layout/ribbon design.

Vanguard has 5 MD80s and 8 732s.

Only 1 732 is in the new livery, it is bright green in back. The rest of the 732s are still in the Blue & White Livery. Eventually though as the MD80s arrive those will be phased out.
