'Planet Always' 727

Wed Aug 22, 2001 8:00 am

Here's one I saw today.

Taking off from LAS about 1:00pm (PST) was a 727 lettered "Planet Always". Fuselage was white with a black tail covered in stars with a large yellow moon.
Lettering was red with "planet" in a block style and "always" in script stacked over and below the windows on the forward section.

Wasn't prepared so no tail number or photo....  Sad

Couldn't find anything in the photo section on it. Anyone have information?

Go to "Advanced Search" on the home page and type in Planet Airways.
You will be able to find pictures of them there.
They fly an all B-727 fleet. Mainly the -0XX series and the -200 series a/c.
I was looking at a picture last night of one of their 722's and noticed that the map on the right tail was backwards. Why?
Here is the pic.

BTW, it's Airways, not always.
Here is a picture of a 722 with the "moon"
