Last UA Old Colors Flight

Tue Nov 20, 2001 2:35 pm

United Express/Atlantic Coast is getting ready to retire their J32 fleet. The last revenue flight will be on 03Dec01. To the best of my knowledge, these are, and will be the last planes to be operating in the old livery of United/United Express. God speed, you "Super 31s".

As sad as this may seem, I kinda want to fly on one of those...for their last flight.

Are there any AirWis 146's in the old colors? I remember seeing them(and flying on one) occasionally.

I doubt AirWisc is running any 146s in old colors now. ACA is operating these J32s on

Washington-Binghamton NY
Washington-Newport News VA
Washington-Shenandoah Valley VA
Washington-Lynchburg VA

for the time being. The last flight on 03Dec01 will be operated Washington-Shenandoah Valley VA.

Lowfareair,

No, all of Air Wisconsin's 18 BAe 146s have been repainted.

Regards.

THANK GOD!!! I hate the junkstreams. They just feel completely unstable in flight. Ever been on one in turbulence? I completely avoided UAX out of IAD for the very reason that I might end up on a Junkstream.

The J31 is a real cutie. I once flew on one from IAD to PHL which was very interesting. Though that plane neither has a bathroom nor a f/a.

I flew on a United Express J31 ten years ago from Syracuse NY to Washington Dulles, United's hub on the East Coast. I don't remember going through any turbulence, I had quite a smooth flight. I do remember that the aircraft didn't have a bathroom or a galley, no flight attendant.
The last time I saw a United aircraft in the old colours was two years ago at Chicago O'Hare. It was a United Express aircraft, I don't remember what type it was, the whole mainline fleet was already repainted in the new colours.
